B. hemsleyana has an interesting flower form, with the top two corolla lobes forming a kind of hood or bonnet, and the lower lobes a kind of platform. This serves to display the plant well, and provides a good landing spot for pollinating insects. There is some variation in the color and markings on the flowers.
