|A truly superb Australian species! It has large but
not unattractive leaves - new growth can be a striking bronze colour -
not flattered by this photograph and extremely large and colourful
flowers. Each individual flower in this picture was about 3.5cm across. The fragrance is spicy, but not particularly strong.
This plant was acquired incorrectly named as the as the closely allied species H. macgillivrayi which has similar, but flatter, flowers.
