Pot Size: 2 litre (deep)
Description: Closely related to D. cantoniense, which is similar in emerging from a short thick running rhizome, with branched stems 50-120cm tall, with 4-6 branches bearing oblong-lanceolate leaves to 12cm long. In this species the nodes and leaf bases are normally purple tinted, while the flowers are held terminally on the branches on short pedicels, the flowers being campanulate yellow to cream at the base merging to dark red at the tips and interior. From one of our collections gathered in Taroko, eastern Taiwan in the autumn of 1999 at 1700m, where it formed a sizeable colony. Best grown in a well drained fertile soil with some moisture retention, in sun to light shade, protect from severe frost.
