Wild Flowers of Hong Kong

I came across many wild flowers during my walks in the wooded parts of Hong Kong last month. Unfortunately, I do not know their names. The pink flower above grows in a shrub or small tree.
This ginger is seen in all parts of the Peak.
This bottle brush like flower was blooming on a tree.
This curious flower with elongated petals looked like a spider. It grows on a shrub.
The white daisies dotted the ground in many places.
I hope you enjoyed looking at these unusual wild flowers.
My thanks to Santilli, Denise, Pupo and Sandy Carlson for hosting Today's Flowers.
