Another Katmon in Flower

Dillenia sibuyanensis in flower

Flower is much smaller than a katmon's
Quick Post: I was gifted by Wendy Regalado with a cutting of Dillenia sibuyanensis or katmon-sibuyan. In about 8 months it established itself then grew from 6 inches to about 2 feet. The other day I saw it in flower.  It had a smaller flower compared to Dillenia philippinensis, but has an attractive yellow flower.  It must be a delight to see a specimen heavily laden with the yellow blooms.  For now I have to contented with the single flower, and at least I know my plant will be doing so someday.
