This Malaysian herbaceous perennial is always in demand. It grows to about 2 ft (0.61 m)high .Somber enough to be out of place even at a funeral, these strange and sinister flowers, with their almost grotesque shoe-lace-like attachments, are quite unlike any other and are going to excite, at the very least, curiosity in all that see it.
The plant is long stemmed, with brownish red colouring, turning greener towards the tip. Reaching lengths of up to 38 cm (15 in) its broad, 20 cm (10 in) wide, the smooth, lanceolate leaves, with angular pleats, are dark green with an under surface colour of greyish green.
