Occurrence remarks Two distinct populations occur on the N shore, each with 50 plants. Two plants were in flower at this population. Many plants of varying sizes make up the population, from very small plants only centimeters tall through to mature flowering individuals. This sheet is made up of a leaf tip, small plant and flowering material from a short lateral inflorescence (1.2 m tall) that had grown from the base of one of the large flowering individuals. Each part is from a different plant.
