I'm very partial to interesting foliage plants, and this specimen completely captured my attention.  It's a beautifully grown plant, and perhaps more lovely out of flower than in flower.  A flowering plant of the species can be seen here.  Other forms here and here illustrate the leaf variation within the species.  There is some confusion about cultivar names.

Members of this species were formerly classified as Koellikeria.
