The flowers form this cultivar are quite pretty. Quite bright pink when the bright light is shining on the flowers.

According to an internet source, the cross - Brunswick Gem - was done in the United States. And then the breeder took a trip to Australia, and somebody in Australia got a flask. And in that flask was this cultivar - Rlc. Brunswick Gem 'Coral'.

Bred and born in USA, with an Aussie accent.

Above - the second pair of flowers have opened. Still colouring up. A bit of 'push and shove' going on with this second pair. The third pair of buds are yet to open.

The flowers only began to open yesterday. So maybe still in the process of opening or getting more colour into the whole flower.

The yellow leaf was due to leaf scorch during the intense summer sun. It's not summer now though. The scorcher days were maybe around January/February. That plant handled it well though.
