Bloom on our Bragmansia:
These blooms are about ten inches in length. I assume these are some kind of tropical weed; the certainly grow like a weed, fast. Blooms on plants that haven’t undergone lots of manipulation by human breeders are typically shaped to fit exactly the creature that pollenates them. It’s a little sobering to image the huge creature that climbs into these blooms. A bat maybe? … Oh I do love the internet. Let me introduce the Bumblebee Bat which, sadly, may well be extinct.
