Did you ever get this one identified?

Not i.d.'d yet on the forum...but I'd love to be included if it gets propagated. It'd be great to get a closer look--it's certainly a beautiful thing.

My vote is (as I originally thought) some sort of Disporopsis. I did a quick search for images and Barracott (barracottplants.co.uk I think) has a pink, open flowered disporopsis in closeup on its site. Check it out.

Did some searching, and it looks like Tripladenia cunninghamii, an Australian native (and thus unfortunately tender).

Well folks, we may have a winner...the Tripladenia call looks pretty good.... (nice call "Arisaema" (most of us use our names here...no one bites.)

No loss that it's tender...just grow it potted and bring it in!

Arisaema, you are right, it looks EXACTLY like that - and remember, I've seen the original.

Couldn't find the pink Disporopsis on the Barracotts site and a pink one isn't listed in their catalogue.

Tim has promised me some seed (are you out there Tim?) so if there's enough..... It shouldn't be tender if grown under trees which is what it likes anyway. Should be OK here anyway.

Thank you. You have made me a very happy lad. I love being able to put a name to this little beauty. Tripladenia it is (previously Kreysigia). Natural distribution is top half of New South Wales and southern Queensland but as Lesley indicated it seems to cope pretty well with the cold. We get down to just below zero in winter with a snow fall every year or two but very little frost. It may also cope with much colder but dying back in winter. Lesley, I have some seed for you but will see if I can get more from the parent plant.
