Compact habit and relatively short growing with broad leaves. Graceful shortish spikes of spidery white flowers with long orange stamens, in summer. The flowers become yellowish with age and are delicately scented.

Hardier than most and the roots will survive winters in mild parts of Britain. Best in a sheltered position with warm, humid conditions, moist humus-rich soil and light part shade.
