A small cultivar; purple foliage, oval shaped, maroon margin, branching habit; triangular stems, coloured purple; panicles of flowers are open, self-coloured pink, staminodes are medium size, edges lightly frilled, petals red with farina, fully self-cleaning; fertile both ways, not self-pollinating or true to type, capsules globose; rhizomes are thick, up to 3 cm in diameter, coloured white and pink; tillering is slow.
