I uploaded some images of this species last year. The plants had arrived with flower buds rather distorted by a long time in the post.

(Double click on the larger images).

The stereos are crosseye.

    Really loving these, Harold.
    The images rather remind me of both volcanic eruptions and fireworks. The explosive presentation and splay of the flowers coupled with their almost fluorescent, rich and vibrant tonalities, must be excellent enticements for hummingbirds, or perhaps, the errant bee or two. Do you see pollinators for this species?
