Unique plant-naming auction raises nearly R600 000

"The delighted winning bidder said that the beautiful little yellow flower will be named after his mother, Angela. The species will be known as Angela’s touch, Ixia angeliana. It is the perfect gift, and not only will she be immortalised in the scientific journals that name the world’s biodiversity, but Angela will also receive the original botanical illustration of the flower by botanical artist Lisa Strachan."
