Wednesday Flower

This exquisite flower is the Parrot Flower (Impatiends Psittacina) located only in Thailand. The plant was identified at the Royal Botanical Garden Kew in 1901 and was discovered in 1899 in the Shaw States of Burma.
It is only found
in portions of Burma and Northern Thailand and is quite rare. The flower is very difficult to cultivate and requires a local natural pollinator to produce seeds. It also requires very specific soil pH in order to prosper and produce the "Blue" coloration that is so beautiful....
