Frithia pulchra (3 pics)

In other news, my old Frithia pulchra is growing flowers again this year. Flowers can not be taken for granted on my windowsill. They are rare and don't occur every year. This Frithia however is going to flower 3rd year in a row. It is an old plant and the exposed stem looks almost like some kind of caudex which makes it even more attractive to me.

And, to finish me off, one of my own seedings is growing a flower as well (not visible on this photo but it's there). This one is something called Frithia pulchra f. rubra and I'm very curious to compare the flowers of these two.
