Exhibited at the AGGS 2002 Convention show.

The bright yellow flowers contrasted engagingly with the red veins and bright green of the leaf. Not all selections of this species have the red leaf veins. M. micromusa is an annual species. It is propagated through sowing the abundant seeds.

Other photos show a specimen with plain green leaves and a closeup of the flower.
