Visited the Matthei Botanical Gardens with my Mom, wife, and kids the other day. We were just about to head out when my mom came up and told me about this one strange flower that was just glowing from a ray of the setting sun that snuck in unobstructed. Sounded intriguing - I rushed over and shot this hand-held before the sun went down further and the glow faded. The dark lush tropical foliage behind made a nice background. Never did find the tag identifying this plant, btw. Anyone know what it is called?
