A second look at a neotropical blueberry

Here’s another picture of the Macleania species that I discussed in a post ten days ago.  As the flowers have aged, the color has changed significantly.

Here is what the flowers look like today:

Macleania species aff. smithiana (H.B.G. 89922)

And here is what they looked like ten days ago:

    1. What, turned frim pink to yellow?

      It’s certainly a sign of aging, but I’m not sure if it is biologically significant. The flowers don’t seem to be senescent. Some flowers change color when pollinated, but there aren’t any hummingbirds in the greenhouse.
