I have no idea what species this gorgeous quarter-sized flower is; I'm calling it "Starburst" only because it reminds me of Fourth of July sky fireworks. (Many of the blooms in the Botanic Garden's winter greenhouses are difficult to identify, because the labels are either overgrown by foliage or missing.) If you know what this plant is, pray let me know, too.
