General Species Information:
Found in the Adelaide Hills
Unfortunately we just missed out on seeing this one flower. They often don't flower at all, building up strength with just one leaf over the years until the time is right. This was the 1st we knew we even had this species at our home in the Adelaide Hills.
The largest leaf was ~40mm wide
