The flowers or inflorescences are very striking with white hooded spathes striped pale pink. As the flowers mature the foliage grows into impressive large glossy like leaves (like those of the cheese plant).  The plants in full leaf, reach between 30 and 50 cm and the flowers vary from 10 to 15 cm. 

These plants emerge late in early June and die back after the first frost in autumn.  Because they remain dormant over the winter and through much of the spring it is worth marking where you plant them in the garden, so you don’t forget where they are! When planted in the garden they are hardy, but when in pots they do need to be protected from frost or lifted and stored frost free over the winter. 

These suit dappled shade but will also thrive in sunnier conditions as long as they don’t dry out in the summer months, as they prefer moist, well-drained soil.
