In that case Tim, congratulations, I will consider myself blessed should I find it in the wild!
What a flower!

@ SZ .. they are pretty rare, this one was flowing outside of Napier and I was on a walk with a local flowrering plant expert. We set out specifically to find it.

Just sensational! Thank you. Like your Lobelia spotting, it would be wonderful if you had any other shots to add to this, especially the whole plant and the plant in its habitat.
