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.

I'm really glad you picked this one Kell. I'm already researching looking for one!

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!
