Found in the local forest, the only one of its kind AFAI can find. Any body recognise it?
I just asked my wife if she recognized it (she's pretty savvy about wildflowers) and she doesn't but the pictures are GREAT. Congrats.
My wife (a serious flower expert - she usually only knows things by their latin names, I have given up trying to buy flowers for her) says "some kind of lily - perhaps princess slipper"?
But then, we live in the Northern Hemisphere, so probably not much help.
Eremophila (Emu Bush)?
It's the most rare of sub-tropical orchids... the Looney Tunes Orchid.. see that digital image of Daffy Duck on it?... er no, it's Jim Carey morphing again, in caricature as usual, er no, it's....
It's incredibly fascinating, and a compelling visual display.
Thanks Tom, and to your wife.
Thanks TC, and wife. Can't find anything about that lily.
Doesn't look like it.
Thanks mate. Rare enough nobody seems to know what it is, so far.
Found out, Hypoestes - Ribbon Bush, AKA 'Purple Haze'. All the way from Sth Africa.
