This is an uncommon posting of the Red Flame.

In this post, I am not showing the main branching or the stunning flowers. Instead, I am showing how the new pinnate leaves arise from the nodes along the stems. In fact, the leaf arrangement appears to be haphazard without any distinct pattern e.g. opposite, whorled, and there is no systematic way the branches originate. I tried to make out something but it was just too random.
