Conandron ramondioides is a perennial herb inhabiting semi-shady cliffs where water always exudes. It sends out a few significant leaves from its short rhizome. The leaves with 3-10cm long petioles are oblong-like oval-shaped, 10-30cm long, 5-15cm in width, and generally with many waves on the surface. Flower stalks emerge from leaf axils and set umbels with 2-3 red-purple flowers each. The corollas, the lower parts cylindrical, and the uppers cleft in five and open almost flat in the dishway, measuring 1.5cm in diameter. Bloom time: June-August.
