The bush is twiggy, compact, ever-blooming. Blooms are short lived but rebloom is rapid, so it always seems to be in bloom. Prickles are rare on stems. This nine-year old own-root plant has formed a rounded bush approx 3' (900mm) high and wide. It gets very little care, apart from a reliable water supply. I love it for the way its blooms light up the garden, even in winter here. Perth, Western Australia, Spring.

Receptacles are usually a goblet shape – a slightly incurved cup, and pedicels have many stalked glands and small prickles. Sepals quickly reflex back along pedicel. Blooms are a fleeting, shallow cup, leaflets are noticeably serrated. Perth, Western Australia, Spring.

Reverses of the crimson petals are lighter than the faces. They appear white-washed in some light but when viewed from another direction, the ‘white’ disappears and the petal reverses take on a lacquer-like lustre. Perth, Western Australia, Spring.

Blooms can be solitary or clustered. A typical cluster with three buds coming from one node and another just below. Sepals reflex fully and tend to drop as the hip forms. Perth, Western Australia, Spring.

Blooms can be solitary or come in clusters. This is a typical inflorescence - three blooms emerging from the same node with another just below. Buds open to a bloom with a shallow cup form but this is a very brief affair. The blooms shatter quickly and there is often a carpet of crimson petals beneath the bush. Such a busy plant, new buds forming and opening each day. Petal reverses appear lighter. In some light the petal reverses appear whitish, in other light the petal reverses have an oily or lacquer-like lustre. Perth, Western Australia, Spring.
