Strumaria truncata is a small bulbous plant with up to 6 erect leaves which stand in a fan and are slightly twisted at the ends. The bright white to light pink flowers are produced on a long slender stem and are usually hanging downwards. It is unusual in having a prominent, inflated, liver-coloured sheath (known as a cataphyll in botanical terms) which often precedes and protects the young foliage. Strumaria truncata is the only species in the genus that produces this curious aerial sheath. The funnel-shaped flowers are white or in shades of pink, and have conspicuously protruding, long stamens.
