Description: An evergreen perennial species growing from a small creeping rhizome. Forming tight basal rosettes, of sessile lanceolate thick-textured glossy fresh green leaves. Bearing several slender upright branched stems to 80cm tall, with the characteristic narrow-petalled ray-flowers with scaly calyces. Growing from crevices on steep riverside cliffs when we found them where it would have been moist in the growing season. Our seed collection from Phan Si Pan the highest mountain in northern Vietnam, gathered in 2006. Cultivate with care in light shade in a well drained soil with moisture retention.
