As with most Calyptrocalyx, this species is very colorful in its new leaves are a orangy to pinky red. This species is supposed to be solitary species, but one I saw seemed to be clustering- maybe a bunch were just planted close together. Particularly nice it that is leaves are entire, bifid leaves making the new red leaves stand out even more. Trunk/stem mostly underground.
