Product Details
An exotic looking herbaceous perennial with strap-shaped leaves from stout stems rising late in the year. The leaves are a pale green with prominent veining reaching around 25 cms long and clasp the stem. The flowers are the main interest being very much orchid-like in appearance. A single large upper petal and two smaller lower petals of a rich purple colour, this is the largest of the genus. These are borne in loose flower heads although only one flower is present at any one time.
