Henckelia primulina (Ridl.) A. Weber

This charming Henckelia has thus far been officially recorded from just one site, the Klang Gates Quartzite Ridge in Gombak, Selangor. While highly endemic, it is not considered endangered, thanks to the fact that its known habitat is within a wildlife refuge and the newly established Selangor State Park. It has striking, glossy, emerald green leaves and dainty yellow flowers, and, like other Henckelias, can be propagated from leaf cuttings. Because of its diminutive habit, it is frequently overlooked in its native habitat; nevertheless it is truly a rare gem among the flora of Peninsular Malaysia.
