    A beautiful picture. One can almost feel the softness of the leaves and blossoms. The colors are exquisite. Thank you.

    Lovely photo.. it almost looks like a bridal bouquet. And, with a little imagination, and slightly squinting the eyes, the rocks beneath the plants COUDL be lace.
    The information about who the plant was named for, or after, is greatly appreciated. A history lesson along with a flower lesson along with a lesson about how the plant has adapted and can more or less take care of itself, even though the place where it lives is quite harsh.
    Thanks so very much you wonderful researchers and botanists and even just regular people, who make this site so interesting, every day.

    When you say “third largest family”, is that within plantae or all taxa?

    I love the softness this photo exudes ~ warm and fuzzy.
