Jim - as a post script, C luteolum is very rarely grown in Australia  as it
is very difficult to source seeds because of its remote habitat and the
erratic nature of its flowering..

I was fortunate to be able to combine a 10 day, several thousand km road
trip last year with a side trip to one of their habitats and was directed
to a location where in 2010, after heavy late summer rains, it was
flowering in profusion.  I was pushing my luck because summer rains in the
area in 2021 had been few and far between and I found only a handful of
harshly sun beaten plants and a few shriveling seeds by the time I visited
the area a couple of months after summer..
