Went to Oxford Botanic Gardens this morning.
This is one of the most amazing plants that I've seen.
It originates from the Phillipines.

In bloom again at the moment David. I put fresh pics up yesterday.
I think that although the colour is not as unique as I once thought, there can be no other plant that produces such an abundant number of blooms in such a concentrated display. This is what really makes it's impact so huge for me.
