Rodriguezia decora

Rodriguezia decora - Flower photo by Richard LindbergRodriguezia decora - Plant photo by Richard LindbergI spotted a single flower on the Rodriguezia decora today. It bloomed already this year and I had removed a division. I wasn't expecting any more flowers.

Rodriguezia decora grows in Brazil in cool to warm mountain forests and grasslands. It is fragrant and needs bright light. The genus Rodriguezia (Rdza) contains about 30 species mostly found in Brazil.

Seeing the flower got me to look at the plant. I noticed that it was growing away from the mount. Just for the sake neatness I tied up the plant so that it ought to be good for another couple of seasons.
