These plants are growing in the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden, Mount Tomah, about 30 miles from Sydney.
The flower colour is stunning, unlike any other flower I've ever seen.

I wasn't the only one impressed by the flowers.

Amazing pictures! I have a little one planted out into it's second winter with a polycarb shelter for protection. The teeth on the leaves are vicious.
