    I think most of this genus do not open the petals so much, which make them unique

    "I think most of this genus do not open the petals so much, which make them unique"

    I was looking at pictures online and it appears that the whole cluster becomes covered in nectar. I would guess that the pollinator crawls all over it and that fertilization is very random?
