Peak, it is Caesalpinia pulcherrima, a shrub. Comes in yellow and pink too.

Theyyam, I dont know too much botany but I love plants, especially wild flora. Saw some of those Cordia trees today at a public garden. No one calls them Geiger trees here!

Me too, I love wild flowers.

That is strange. How come this thread does not show up on the Home page?

snonymous,
This thread will never show up on the Home page because it is in Chai and Chat.

Could you change that please Theyyam, else this thread will never get anywhere near the response let alone the visibility that "What Bird is this" does.

Thanks

You mean "better" - innuendo implied!

Thanks Theyyam.

Snonymous, could the first tree be a Dandal?


... and the second one, I'll put in a vote for the Small Flowered Ixora.

Just a thought - the problem with IDing trees is that you often need more than a flower shot. Bark, tree size, leaves etc. are all quite important in positively identifying them & even then it can be a task if the lighting is less than ideal.

Anyway, I like the concept & especially the flowers theme where the characteristics of the whole plant can usually be captured/displayed in a single JPG Image.

Thanks Peak,

I had a look at the Dandal but mine was a big tree and the leaves look different, my leaves were more of the Jamun [syzigium] type. Will look through my books later.

About the ixora, mine is probably of the same family, havent found a match with the green yet. Will keep looking.

This is a bit cheeky of me as it's not an Indian flower I'm looking for a name for.

Well it might be an Indian flower but this particular specimen is growing in West Cork.

I've just recently moved into a new house and one of the many joys is discovering the plants and trees here as they come into flower and leaf. Another joy of course is planting lots more

So, if I can manage to attach a photo, here is a plant with beautiful pink heart-shaped dangling flowers.

Beautiful. I believe these are Bleeding Hearts, Julia. My kindergarten was full of them. Because my teacher was my aunt who had a huge garden. So while all the other kids were in a formal kindergarten with walls & tables etc., I was having a private tutorial & often in my Aunt's garden. I think that's where my fascination for nature started.
