Large Delicate Flowers

 

Reminded me of Mariposa Lilies in my home state of Idaho, and grew in a site just a windy. Huge simple flowers, dark centers, borne one at a time at the top of a single stem. 2″ pale pink blush. Harold Porter Botanical Garden in Betty’s Bay, South Africa. Drosera cistiflora, is my guess.

Carnivorous Plants take pollination seriously as any other plant. Flower color and shape is amazingly similar to Mariposa Lilies, and likely attract similar pollinators.
