Had to look this one up, never heard of it.  Here's a nursery link, apparently related to Roscoea, and looking much like one, attractive:

I bought a rhizome of Pyrgophyllum yunnanense early this year. It produced a two flowers that appeared to wither before opening fully. To my surprise there are now two seed pods that appear to contain plump seeds. Considering the rate at which new shoots are emerging from the rhizome I don't consider seed to be the best way of propagating this plant and can offer seed should it look OK when mature.
