Description: An evergreen perennial species arising from a slowly creeping thickened scaly rhizome. Which we collected from the Experimental Forest, part of The Taiwan University at Hsitou in the winter of 1993. Where it formed a large colony which enveloped a huge boulder, only obtaining moisture from the debris and leafmould accumulated above its rhizomes. With faintly spotted and streaked leaves to around 1m long held on short petioles encased in a purple sheath, bearing purple-yellow edged flowers at ground level. Easily grown in a well drained compost kept on the dry side in winter, out of doors best grown in evergreen shade in a well drained soil, frosts may scorch the foliage.
