Thanks, Paul. If that frit reappears this year (it's not up yet) I'll try
to do that. When the picture was first posted to the Mystery Page, Jane
McGary responded with some hints with respect to its identity (likely a
form of F. graeca or F. crassifolia) and some advice about what to look for
inside the flower to distinguish the two. 

We'll see what happens. 

Thanks again for your input; what's summer like in Canberra? We're under
snow again.  : (
