Each stalk ends in two opposite facing flowers of bright red with white-green throats. A couple of stalks have already opened, with a couple more on the way.
After the flowers fade, the growth will thicken up as the season progresses, eventually forming clumps. The wide, strap-like leaves each have a reddish stripe on their underside. If winter temperatures stay in the 20s, the leaves will remain. Otherwise, it will lose most and have to recover.
