Description:
From one of our collection on our way down The Mewa Cola, on our way to Taplejung, during our last couple of days of collecting in eastern Nepal, with Dan Hinkley and Jamaica Kinkade late October 2002. A slender species with narrow lance-shaped dark-green leaves born on stocky stems, to a height of just over 2m and spread of 60cm on the plants we collected seed of. This clump forming rhizomatous perennial, carries a long terminal spike of orange-red flowers with long protruding stamen during late summer. Full sun to part shade in moisture retentive well drained soil, protect rhizomes from frost. Not recommended for clay without lots of drainage.
