NOTES

Evergreen tropical perennial.  Broad, ovate-lanceolate, pointed, shiny dark green leaves (to 12” long) appear in rosettes. This green plant foliage is highlighted, however, by contrasting bright orange petioles and leaf midribs which bring an orange fire-like glow to the center of each plant, hence the cultivar name of ‘Fire Flash’. White flowers bloom in dense, cylindrical, outward-arching panicles.
