Lo and behold, they delivered! And being the sort of people who actually know the names of the plants in their yard I even have their accompanying common (non latin) names below each photo.
This is Mandivilla - I don't think I've ever noticed this type of flower before, but it's so tropically gorgeous! I want to put on in my hair, but I think it would take over and I would look like I was crazy. Mebbe I am.
Mexican Heather. Don't these look like they're glowing? My parents have been feeding them radioactive vitaminds and soil supplements. They'll be cashing in big I expect...wouldn't you love glowing flowers?
Lastly, this is Alamonda which reminds me of a daffodil without the center tube. I have no idea what that middle part is called, sorry. :)
I hope you all enjoy this glimpse into the more vibrant and kaleidiscopic flora of another place in this great nation. We are so blessed to be citizens of a country with an abundance of natural resources that provide and inspire.
