photographing and learning about wildlife
Seen in Queens Gardens, Townsville. I was quite taken with the coral-like 'frills' on the flower. Thanks to auntnance123 for the ID! After doing some research I discovered that this plant is native to Mexico and Central America but is widely naturalised in the coastal districts of eastern Australia. Sadly, it is also an "emerging environmental weed" in Queensland and NSW.
