Despite the oppressive heat of May we headed towards a nursery hoping to find plants and blooms that are not the usual ones we see nearly everywhere. And we weren’t disappointed! Dwarf canna lilies in different shades, all kinds of jasmine and hibiscus, frangipani and ixoras vied for space in that three acre nursery.
The most spectacular ones were these passion flowers. There were several vines and the one that came home with me is the one in the first photo.
A variety of solanum but not sure about the name. The nursery couldn’t provide a name either.
And all along the periphery of the nursery were these small trees, the Sita Ashok/Saraca asoca in full bloom. The blooms are mildly fragrant. In the background you can see another tree with red flowers. That’s the Flame tree/Delonix regia, also in full bloom now.
