Flower Size 1/2"+

Separated from others in the reflexum group by the smaller flowers, a little over half an inch, the long, 3-4 foot wirey inflorescence with spaced out flowers. It blooms in the fall and early winter.

MAny sources cite this species as a synonym of O reflexum, I leave them separate until more references and photos are available.
