Sinningia micans is one of several species within the Dircaea group of Sinningia, that has a conspicuous “galea” or hood. Others include species like S. cardinalis, cooperi, globulosa and iarae

S. micans is also one of the species that produces a prominent above-ground tuber or “caudex” that can have as much decorative potential as the foliage and flowers.
