In 2006 I lived in La Manzanilla, located on the west coast of Mexico 300 kms South of Puerto Vallarta. On my daily walks along side the beach I noticed these plants. At first they were just a grouping of long thin grass like leaves that extended up about 20 centimeters. However, as time went on stalks appeared, and then one day the flowers exploded into life. The edges of the path were covered in these exquisite little blossoms that seemed to me like exploding fireworks.
