    Gorgeous; it looks like your photos feature the diploid version. I grow this but it is a weak grower for me here in Minnesota. By contrast, the tetraploid version called P. obovata variety Wilmottiae grows very robustly here.

    I really enjoyed the Wikipedia link for the list of what all can vary on this plant and still be identified as the same species (colour, number of petals, number of sepals, number of carpels, degree of hairiness, 20 to 240 stamens!); and the ploidy article indicating that bees can sense a difference in number of chromosomes was short, easy to read, and very interesting.

    Policy and Pollinators was so interesting! Who’d a thunk?

    If I was a bug, I would love to live inside that flower.
