C. eburnea is an attractive and relatively easy-to-grow plant. Its shiny green leaves set off the unusual and attractive flower very well. The flowers emerge from large white bracts, which spread apart like clamshells to reveal two or more unusual yellow and white flowers. This plant was grown by Betty Tapping. There is a close-up of the bract and flowers on another page.
Toshijiro Okuto of Japan has provided an image of a Chirita species that he has identified as a blue-flowered form of C. eburnea.
