Hairy leaves, flowers with five white petals and a red/yellow central structure. Curiously twisted fruits. One of the common names for this plant appears to be "sting lily", but I haven't noticed a stinging quality yet to my seedlings – nothing like their cousins B. insignis, anyway. Seedlings grow fairly quickly – the ones in the photo at right are a couple weeks old.
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...

They didn't seem to sting as seedlings. Unfortunately, I lost track of them after setting them out in the garden – I suspect they perished quickly, so I did not observe them at a further stage of development.
