Not far from the buildings of SouthWild Pantanal I found this species in large numbers, but only this one with a fresh and vibrant flower. The others were past their prime and fading.

The petals are very thick and leathery.

They all were small bushes reaching to my knee, but seemed to have been pruned by herbivores, so their full size I do not know..
