The flowers are ephemeral due to sudden changes in temperature and its colour is usually white with five pale yellow warty ribs running between the side lobes to half way along the mid lobe. The leaves of this species are thick, oblong-lanceolate, and measure about 9 x 2 cm long. The distribution of this species occurs in most parts of Southeast Asia, especially areas which are not affected by a long, dry season.
