Having problem adding it as a new plant.
I photographed it in the local botanical garden with that tag.

Catalogue of Life doesn't recognize it:

And the system doesn't accept the genus:

The botanical garden may have misspelled the genus name. The plant is in the database here with (I think) the correct spelling:

Zippelia begoniifolia

Thanks Kent, no the botanical garden had spelled it right and I believe I filled it in right, it is strange..
But enfin problem solved! Thank You!
Ah now I see I must have spelled it wrong with putting two 'l's and only one 'p' Rolling my eyes.
