Stunning, although short-lived prolific peach-colored blooms in an unusual petal configuration. Always gets a "wow" from guests when in bloom (spring in HI). Grows well for me in damp, dense shade. Prefers moist conditions, but tolerates dry. Challenging to propagate - I have had no success from cuttings, or seeds. Literature suggests using root sprouts. Nice bushy form. Very slow growing.

Frost tender! It died to the ground in the extended cold that hit southern Florida this past year. I hoped it would come back, but no such luck.
