wonderful flowers 

it also shows  problems in wild for the plant
I was wondering about its fruits?

There are some young emerging fruits in the last image.

AAAh, great

if you are in a geographic area where a followup visit is possible, would love to see fully grown fuits/berries.
otherwise no pressure. 

It is too far for me. Not sure if I could make it again. By the way it is closed from 15 June to 15 September during fruiting
