This beautiful flower grows on a scrub that is generally found growing out of cracks in cliff rocks often near canyon streams. The flower blossom looks somewhat like a citrus blossom and even has somewhat of a citrus smell. The seeds of the plant are rich in oils love by ants, which leads to a theory why the seeds end up in the cracks of rocks. The cast-off seeds sometimes land in cracks where germination takes place.
