Name not totally certain, but the leaves suggest it's this species, with rosettes of narrow wavy-edged dark green leaves liberally sprinkled with deep red markings. From these rosettes should arise short flower spikes of deep purple flowers, topped by a leafy tuft with matching red spots. Needs protection from frost, so best in a pot, perhaps plunged outdoors for the summer and brought undercover for the winter
