"New" flowers

While at the butterfly park, i saw many plants that i had not seen before and hence could not identify..
As always, many thanks to all my blogging friends who were quick to come up with the names.

This one seemed to be the Field Sow-Thistle (Sonchus arvensis)
 
















This one is the butterfly bush (buddleja asiatica), that attracts of 'hordes of butterflies'

The lemonia (ravena spectabilis), which has a curious flattened appearance and is said to be a 'great butterfly attractor'.
 
  














  
This is the clerodendrum paniculatum or the pagoda flower















Jatropha podagrica

The second picture is a white variety of butterfly bush (Buddleja davidii), the plant in the third-to-last looks like Clerodendrum paniculatum, and the last picture is Jatropha podagrica, I think.

The third picture is the Lemonia/Ravenia spectabilis. I got one from a nursery a few months ago and I'm happy with the blooms! the second last blooms are stunning!
