Description:

As far as we know there are only two plants of this in the world - the first one we found is nicknamed Brett, the second is Nicola. The plants were refound by Sarah Moore a couple of years ago having not been seen for about 100 years. On the 8th attempt yesterday I finally managed to collect seed from Brett for ex situ conservation. So here are the first pictures

Amazing

I'm not qualified to agree, but I wouldn't doubt your skills. Now that's what I call rare!

I know him well :)

Let's hope he produces lots of good seed.
