I am yet to put a name to most of what I saw at the Golden Palms, but I simply could not resist sharing. The colours and the exhuberance of the plants were such a joy!
The firecracker plant (picture on the right) was in bloom. I learnt that its botanical name is Russelia equisetiformis and that, surprisingly, it too, like the snap dragon (antirrhinum) and the wish bone flower (torrenia indica), belongs to the dog flower family.
star cluster flower (pentas lanceolata) was everywhere - this time in white!
The colors of these flowers was quite simply breathtaking!
The poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima) was rather striking with its reds
