Not seen on that looks like this, but then again I have not explored this kind of habitat before.

Saw these a week ago without flowers but heard yesterday they were in flower, so went first thing this morning to get photos. Using Knee pads to get down meant some of the best shots I have taken of this species, so really happy.
