Description: From one of my 2007 seed collections gathered with Peter Wharton, while we were camped in Y Ty a treasure trove that I had found in 2003, meanwhile we were being soaked to the skin on a daily basis, by the relentless rain. A distinct form of this species with upright stems to around 1m tall bearing broadly ovate dark green leaves on very short petioles, with a broad cylindrical inflorescence of white long-tubed slender distinctly scented flowers with long curved orange-red exerted stigmas by mid-summer. Easily grown in either full sun or part shade in a moisture retentive drained soil protect the rhizome from hard frosts, hardy for us unprotected in an open field to below -15C.
