I definitely posted about the Brazilian Red Cloak or Brazilian Plume before. During the Australia trip, I took some beautiful stands of them in the Roma Street Parkland. These photos were taken from the Car Park Garden.

Like other shrubs from the Acanthaceae Family, the less conspicuous and smaller white flowers are held up by colourful red bracts, hence the common name.

I love the contrast of the plants in the top photo. A link on this amazing plant is shown below:
