Syringodea tubiflora

This diminutive purple gem is blooming in the greenhouse. They require full sun to open their tiny blooms, so I have to be lucky to see them open, and pray for a sunny day when I'm not working of course. The flowers are a little bigger than a nickel, and come from South Africa. They have lovely twisted filiform leaves that generally appear with or after the flowers.
