The Cup of Gold

I took the opportunity to click this photo yesterday when there was a bit of sunshine. This is the Cup of Gold, or Chalice vine, Solandra grandiflora, which is in full bloom now. The new fowers are pale cream,and the older flowers are yellow. I have made it climb up to my terrace, where it gets plenty of sunshine.


  1. You have a beauty there, Lotusleaf. I thought it looked like allamanda until I enlarged the picture and saw that your Cup of Gold has a beautifully lined throat!

  2. Yes, it does look like allamanda from a distance.
