OT: plant question

  • Subject: [iris-photos] OT: plant question

Is there an expert on portaluca species that can help me identify one?  My 
growing conditions are so bad here I dug three species that grow here 
naturally and put them in pots.  I'm happy with the results (they aren't 
dying like most everything else).  Two I could find with a net search, but 
there is one with an orange and yellow bloom the net didn't turn up anything 
I could identify.  Oddly, one of the others that appears to be what is 
growing is supposed to be a native of Hawaii.  How it would end up growing 
wild in this part of Texas is a mystery.
