Thats a nice tidy looking one! All pressed and starched for the day. Reminds of Sister Bertrills hat in "The Flying Nun"... Great picture Pongsak!

Love this flower. So different. A great photo, pongsak.

Funny when I saw this photo for the first time recently I thought it was the same flower that was on Plant ID Forum for ages unable to be IDed.

So I went back and found that thread. http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/471620/?hl=Rothmannia

And though it was not the same plant, I had to laugh as I went over that ID thread for I had the same thought about the same flower in 2011.

That is the trouble with this BOTD, David. I always see new plants on it that I just want so much. Plant lust! LOL I can tell by your garden that you are also an adventuresome gardener and like me, will want all the different beauties! To see such beauty everyday is such a thrill.

Gee David, it may be hard to find it. I just looked on Flickr to see if I could find a lead for you and there are hardly any photos posted of it. The main ones posted are from pongsak too. Small world. LOL

I was surprised at how very little information indeed is out there on this one!
