First blooms





The orange and yellow blooms are very attractive and catch your eyes immediately. They are climbers and will make good decorative plants on your fence or a pergola. I bought this plant seedling last year and placed it behind the mulberry bushes outside the fence. If you stand in front of the fence you cant see them. Finally it has shown its bright and lovely blooms. The blooms are showing their lovely faces to the garden inside facing my small pond, gracing just above the fence.



But I dont know the name of this plant!




Well...since then, Stephanie of Steph's Green Space had provided the name of this vine, its called Bauhinia kockiana. Thank you again Steph!








Linking this to Tootsie's Fertiliser Friday/Flaunt your flowers.

Those blooms look like orange and lemon sherbet! But I don't know the name of the plant. The flowers sure are cheery and they say "sunshine" to me!

Memang cantik Milka, I placed them behind the mulberry bush betul2 dekat fence, senang dia nak memanjat.

Very beautiful orange flower! New to me!

Autumn Belle said...

You are indeed growing a native plant that grows wild in our Malaysian rainforest. B. kokiana can even be trained to climb up a tree. I have seen them at Putrajaya Shangri-la and also Equatorial Hotel Bangi. You have a lovely vine.

Thank you Malar, Autumn Belle n Joyce. They are lovely and eye-catching once they grow into a grove and climbing. Im going to try your cucumber pickle soon Joyce, I know Im going to love it!

Yes Bangchik, orange is really very attractive and really stands out against the dark green foliage.

This bauhinia is worth planting. I have one growing over an arch. I love its flamboyance.

Those really are eye catching. It will be perfect for my fence to make it more appealing to passers by. Thanks a lot for sharing its name, will look it up at the garden store.

That's a really good looking flower? It's that kind of plant that grows up in the air and covers everything in it's path?
