General Information

Some Cryptantha are heterostylous. That means that within the same species, the flowers can differ wildly. Each individual is born with a specific type of flower, and all of it's flowers are the same, however, it's sister may look quite different.
Heterostyly is a unique form of polymorphism and herkogamy in flowers. In a heterostylous species, two or three different morphological types of flowers, termed morphs, exist in the population. On each individual plant, all flowers share the same morph. The flower morphs differ in the lengths of the pistil and stamens, and these traits are not continuous.
Herkogamy is the technique of a species of flower to keep it's male flower parts from it's female flower parts. It usually does this by holding the female stigma above the male stamen, or vice versa.
Could be Cryptantha intermedia
