Exhibited at the 2002 show of the AGGS.

Bellonia spinosa is interesting, and not only because of its pleasing vegetative form as seen in this picture. It has attractive rotate flowers (lobes are symmetrical, with no obvious top and bottom to the flower), shiny holly-like leaves and the characteristic spines.
