A visually striking plant, it has both gorgeous leaves and some of the strangest flowers you will ever see. The leaves are dark green and glossy, and the large flowers are cream shading to orange, marroon, and brown, and shaped like a Jack-in-the-Pulpit. However, like a Strophanthus, the top of its flower has a long streamer which trails down for a foot or more. It is fast growing and highly adaptable: though it loves sun, it will tollerate a lot of shade, and though it is a tropical, it can tollerate moisture ranges from very high to very dry, though it will apreciate a drink in a drought. Though the foliage may be a bit tender, the roots are hardy.
