Each plant bears multiple unique candle like flowers, rather reminiscent of a chincherinche ( ornithogalum). It has such a short flower stem that it appears to sit right on the peduncle, giving the raceme a very candle-like appearance.
    The greenish flower buds gradually turn white as the open, revealing bright yellow filaments with bright orange anthers that seem to jump from the flowers like sparks.
