Flowers are borne in a cone-shaped spike, maturing into a more cylindrical shape. They can vary in size and shape of inflorescence, i.e. shape of lip, spur length and flower colour. The sepals and petals are bright pink, with a very slender, long spur from which the butterflies drink the nectar. More intensely coloured flowers at higher altitudes.

Leaves

Capsule: with numerous tiny seeds.
