The red underside of the leaves of S. wendlandii is quite dramatic.  The species is unifoliate (each plant has a single leaf).  Several plants are growing in this common pot.  Photos of the flowering plants and a closeup of the flowers further illustrate the attracive nature of this species.  S. porphyrostachys also has reddish-backed leaves, and this characteristic has been transferred to hybrids.
