Having a hard time saying it?
Try this then..
Don't wanna get all tongue twisted :)
Also known as the Firecracker Flower or the Orange Marmalade.
A tender tropical perennial which originates from Southern India and Sri Lanka.
Its 5-petals flowers are unique.
A welcome change from the many pinkish collection in my garden right now.
Its fragrance is lovely too,
Faint scent of jasmine when you run your fingers over it.
No offence guys.
It has that 'graceful' look being 'tall and slender'.
And with flowers coming out from the spiked stalks.
Which looked like a lady wearing a big hat!
Hehe.. my imagination can go wild :)
The flower is named the Firecrackers for a reason.
See this seed pods..
These matured seedpods will 'explode' with a POP sound when it rains.
I thought that is so cool!
It has been raining very heavily the past few days.
And the thunder may have drown the POP sound when it burst opened.
All I see is seeds strewn all over my white floor.
Hhmm..better luck next time I hope.
But then again, I'm afraid of thunder..
I'm always in my room on rainy days.
So, no way will I be able to hear it POP! :(
And besides being tolerant to sun and shade,
Is that it is always flowering!! :)
Well my friends,
I suppose this is my last post for the year.
