You had me tricked until I realise it was a union of two rain lily flowers.
I think its a double variety, lets wait for the next blooms it produces...

The flowers on these dwarf plants are so close to the soil that they get stained with dirt despite careful watering.. they are more suitable for pots...

The humidity and cloudy weather has made a significant improvement on the leaves.. i am growing the well known shade plant "Caladium" in full sun and all the varieties are doing fine.. no leaf brown spot or burnt edges at all..

Youare right, AY Khan also has it. It is twice as charming as the single one.

Very very nice. Hopefully we'll see some plants do this well in Lahore also with the monsoons coming.

Gorgeous. Passiflora is beautiful. Is is fragrant? I have read incarnata is fragrant!!!!

I did not know lantana white is fragrant :( Have sniffed almost all colors of lantana but none has honey fragrance. Will try to look through this white one for sure.

I think flower is the prettiest blue/purple passiflora. I got my hands on passiflora Incense. I think they are quite similar.

Khabbab bhai, i didn't smelled the passionflower.. i still remember that i have to send you the white passionflower seeds, i'll send the lantana cuttings with it.. they root easily...

If these passionflower produced fruits then i can share their seeds too...

Incense is one of most fragrant passies if i am correct. Keep some cuttings for me in monsoon :)
