Conandron ramondioides is a perennial herb inhabiting semi-shady cliffs where water exudes all the time on there. It sends out a few significant leaves from its short rhizome. The leaves with 3-10cm long petioles are in the oblong-like oval shape, 10-30cm in length, 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 dish way, measuring 1.5cm in diameter. Bloom time: June-August.
