More from Thialand, probably better known as Frangipani. Not the easiest thing to photograph in situ as they grow as trees in Thailand and mostly the blooms are too high.

Bought a book on these from the small supermarket by the hotel, sadly written in Thai apart from the names but the photographs and diagrams on care/ cultivation are self-explanatory. I was very surprised to learn that there are at least 160 named varieties ranging from almost pure white to deep pink-red, although they are all either bi- or tri- coloured.

I have had a yellow one for 12+ years and it is just about to flower for the fourth time and is now about 4' tall. I acquired another a couple of years ago, which I am hoping will be pink/yellow and have recently been given a third, which should be dark pink, although in my experience you can never be sure of the colour until they flower. Not easy to obtain in the UK and horribly expensive - to replace my large one would probably set me back a couple of hundred pounds - seedlings cost up to £30!

They need a huge amount of bright light to make them flower but thankfully don't mind going down to about 10C in the winter, so are kept in the conservatory. All mine have been obtained as cuttings which I have then rooted myself, so it's very much fingers crossed that the latest addition will take.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on Butterflies and Bugs - would still like a name for the cosy couple - amazed at the number of similar shots on EPZ yesterday!

Regards, Sandra

Three great images displaying beautitful tones. I particularly like the white/creamy one with the hint of yellow in the center.
I discovered this flower on a recent trip to SE Asia and I was amazed by their beauty. JNC

Beautiful images, Sandra. They grow in profusion here, I have a small one in a tub in my garden, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will produce flowers for me this year! Carol

Good series. Like the texture that you seem to have acheived on the petals - a slight watercolour effect ? V1 for me although I think the borders on the other two are a bit more subtle.
