Pretty cool and needless to say, rare rhizomatous evergreen perennial taxonomically wandering among genera from Tupistra to Campylandra to currently Rohdea which we have written in pencil. This has proven nicely hardy here in the PNW making a statement with elegant narrow green leaves with a muted amber central stripe.  Flowers curiously interesting.  Sure, this could be damning by faint praise using classic nursery merchandising deflection and obfuscation but the flowers are curious.  And interesting.  This is from a Quarry Hill Botanic Garden collection which they shared with us.  We saw this species growing among bamboo and mixed shrubs on the slopes of Luoji Shan in Sichuan and it was like unexpectedly running into a friend, a brohdea, so to speak.
