Thanks all. I am so happy you all liked the flowers.

Julia, even in SGNP, Mumbai, we have FRHs (Forest rest houses) named 'Amaltas' and 'Jarul'.
EDIT - I got some local names for these flowers while I was seeking the ID, Julia. Thought it would be interesting to share them because its easier to remember them. I am not a fan of all those 'scientific names'...it's too scientific!

Nick, I wasn't aware of the seeds of Laburnum being poisonous - haven't seen the seeds yet!! Will checkif I can get to see some seeds when I take a walk under that tree again.

Somnath, still think flowers are boringly so beautiful?

Hi Naveena, I just saw your edit. I think it's great to have all the names - local, English AND scientific .

I remember some lovely photos a few years back by snonymous of the flowering trees in Mumbai - absolutely beautiful. It may be boiling hot but you have gorgeous trees! I would love to go to SGNP!

A 'Giant Lily', from SGNP. The lake in SGNP is drying fast but it still has these lily plants/flowers covering a particular portion of the lake! A few lilies are really big!!

Can some one help me identify this flower? Seen in Nagercoil, Tamil Nadu.








Two flower identification threads have been merged.

@morichika

Your second photo is a neomarica, commonly called walking iris because the blossom stalks produce new plants after they flower which then droop down to touch the ground, root, and start a new plant.

The third photo is a begonia hybrid - not sure of specific name because there are thousands. Note that begonias have separate male and female flowers. You can see in your photo one flower that's flat (the male flower that produces pollen) and the other flowers that have "wings" under the petals to produce the seed (female flowers).

Can't ID the other two.

Hoya

We were so excited to find this flower in our garden today that I had to share it!

This is a hoya in a hanging pot in one of our orange trees. There are 200-300 different species of hoyas native from the Himalayas through Southeast Asia, the Pacific Islands, and Australia. Most are vining plants that grow up in the trees. Common names include waxplant. waxvine, and waxflower.

The tag for this plant has been lost (I can never figure out where plant tags disappear to), so I don't have the species name.

Many hoya species have flowers with a wonderful sweet spicy scent. I'll have to go out after dark to check for fragrance.

The first photo shows the sad-looking plant, then a flower cluster just ready to open, then two different flower umbels currently in bloom.

We have a hoya growing in a small pot in the backyard. In Australia it is a rain forest plant and does well in partial shade. Sorry I do not have a picture as it is winter here and hoya flowers in summer. I just love the fragrance.
