What’s a heloniopsis?

Heloniopsis orientalis Flash Dance in flowerI just snapped this photo of the fascinating Heloniopsis orientalis ‘Flash Dance’ yesterday. The amazing and unusual winter flowers are just perfect atop the variegated foliage.  Heloniopsis grows well with pitcher plants, needing somewhat moist (not wet) soils.  The mature height is only 6″ tall in flower.   Zone 5a hardy.
