Other leaves are linear or linear-oblong, obtuse with a short callous point, to 5-25 cm long, thickly coriaceous and obscurely veined. These leaves are also narrowed at the base, but without stipular teeth bracts; not so long as the flower, but probably enlarging after flowering. The flowers are orange and red.
