Mountain Rocket flower
The flower of a Mountain Rocket plant (Bellendena montana), the sole member of the Bellendena genus, which in turn is the sole member of the subfamily Bellendenoideae. It is endemic to high-altitude parts of Tasmania, Australia, but is not often cultivated because it is difficult to grow at low altitudes.Photo: JJ Harrison
