Flowers vary considerably in shape and colour and leaves in size and shape, hence the name of the two faced deity.

The flower reaches 13 cm across. Flow­ers mid-season. Leaves are broad-ovate, 13 cm x 9.5 cm, bluntly pointed or, alternatively, 9.5 cm x 3.8 cm, sharply pointed. See colour photo, p.19.
