Workers removed a dead fallen tree from a Louisiana swamp. Plant was growing where two branches intersected the main trunk which had collected what looked to be a soil. The leaves have tiny barbs along the edge, with white fuzziness on bottom . Roots are similar to Iris. leaves form a cup like structure that will hold water. Semi- Urceolate multicolored (purple, white, yellow, pink, & red) Flowers grow on a branched inflorescence that grows out of the center cup structure.
