Flowers at the pool - Mussaenda

Yet another flowering plant around the swimming pool is the ubiquitous Mussaenda. I got to observe the flowers real close, something i have not done before, and realized that much like the bougainvilla the pink parts that we see from a distance are not the flowers but the bracts that enclose small yellow flowers! Quite the discovery.

That's going to put up a pretty display!! The colour on my mussaenda is just beginning to show. I've had pests on the plant and had to prune t severely.
