Neonauclea pallida

1 Neonauclea padilla.jpg

I came across this in one of the gardens I took a walk in. Google tells that this beautifully spherical flower head is called Neonauclea pallida! Apparently they are a genus of flowering plants in the family Rubiaceae, and there are about 65 species of them.

"Resembling a pincushion, the flower head is packed with tiny, cream-coloured tubular flowers each featuring a pin-like, pure white style. ‘Pallida’ means "pale," referring to the flower colour, and like many other white-flowered plants, this species is moth-pollinated."
