Hi Brian - that one is a mystery - I've never seen this plant, and I would have remembered it if I had. What a lovely and unusual flower.
You may have access to some very different plants than what we can get in the northern hemisphere - this is what plant explorers were after when they went to other lands to bring back odd and unusual plants.
I'll keep looking, but nothing about this plant rings a bell with me. Do you know anything more about it, such as where it originated?
Happy Succulent Growing!
