  Golden Shrimp Plant

 

Thailand

The Golden Shrimp Plant bears yoke-shaped, long-throated, short-lived white flowers, that emerge from overlapping, bright yellow bracts on racemes. The English name perhaps comes from the fact that their shape is somewhat reminiscent of that of the Mantis Shrimp (fig.).
