It forms large evergreen clumps of stiff grey-green leaves and startling flowers that resemble an exotic bird species. The flowers stand out above the foliage, at the tips of long stalks, and are bright orange with purple edges and bright blue tongues. Mature plants are very floriferous, with flowers in autumn, winter and spring. The crane flower is a slow grower, but is long-lived; and can eventually reach 1.5m tall and 2m wide.
With its striking form and unusual flowers, has become a favourite garden subject in warm climates around the world; and has adapted so happily to foreign climates that it has even been adopted as the civic emblem of the American City of Los Angeles.
