Flowers of the Rainforest

 This Clerodendrum flowers in the most unexpected placess in the rainforests of the Western Ghats. It is also called the Pagoda flower because of its shape.
 This highly scented white flower is known as Suragi in Kannada. Girls like to wear them in their hair.
The greenish inflorescence of the creeper look like paper flowers.
I was away from home for a long time and so could not post anything earlier.
I will try to post regularly now!


  1. I saw some Pagoda flowers recently at Butterfly World. I am thinking of adding some to my gardens. :-)

  2. Lovely, particularly the suragi.

  3. Pagoda flowers are so common in coastal konkan India, I remember as kids we used to use it as crowns while playing.

  4. Those flowers are so beautiful! I have seen the pagoda flower here too! Hope you had wonderful holiday! Welcome back to blogging world! ;)

  5. Such beautiful flowers. I am getting a whiff of their fragrance just by sitting in front of my computer. Do they flower year round or during specific seasons?

  6. I'am glad to read the whole content of this blog and am very excited.Thank you.
