Just in time for the heat wave that is August in Austin, Blaze opened up for her second bloom cycle (that I know of). Only took a few years, but you get used to waiting with these plants :)
So difficult to get the colors on any red, but this one is orangy red with those distinctive dark gold sparkles.
The colors on the next few pics are pretty close to real life.
Funny, as the flowers get older they start to close up again and fall off almost completely closed.
The leaves, which are very distinctive, also start to close toward the end of the day. This is inflo #2.
It will be a few years before this tree is big enough to take cuttings, so I'm sorry I can't share it. And Rox, the scent is herbal/spicy but very faint. Thought you might ask ;)
