It makes annual stalks from a perennial rootstock, broad, middle green oval leaves and a showy, flat inflorescense with several flowers surrounded by nicely contrasting yellowish-green bracts. The seed capsules have a typical rugose surface. Easily cultivated in any humus rich, well drained soil in partial shade. III-V.
