Description: Small plant with the height up to the top of the flower about 20cm. Grows in grass patches. The underside of the flowers are redish and the are about 1.5cm in dia. Please may I ask a question? Some of the flowers had a purple streak in the middle as in the last photograph, is this an indication of a male/female flower or does it get that colour when the flower is older?
