N. australis is typical of the most widely-grown members of this genus — it has the “right side up” pouched flowers seen in many popular species and hybrids.

A display fruit shows that interest and beauty is not restricted to flowers.

Here are two pictures of the fruit burst open to reveal the seed.  (Picture One and Picture Two).
