    Interesting plant.
    Do you have any images of the whole plant? I can’t think what it might look like.

    Unfortunately, no – the light was extremely harsh (this photo was shadowed by my body), so anything I’d take would be garish. The link to Lewis’s description of the plant includes a scan of a pressed specimen. That gives a good idea of what it looks like, somewhat spindly on occasion, but often with more inflorescences so it looks a bit fuller.

    gorgeous blossom — looks like in spite of the garish light surrounding you, Daniel — you managed to take a beautiful shot inside your shadow.
