These plants were at the top of a high limestone hill and comprise the largest population of this taxon we have ever seen, with very  little sign of disturbance.  The plants grow up to a large diameter, some are  multiheaded, and capable of bearing many flowers, which show the typical colour range found in this region, with 90% of the plants having deep pink flowers
