Hello, I love you,

Won’t you tell me your name?

When I was at Hunte’s Gardens, this GORGEOUS plant was on the terrace.

Just in case one time was not enough!

Does anyone know what it is? I love it!

    Garden bloggers are amazing! Almost instant identification. Any chances this plant can be overwintered here in the cool north?

    I clicked on your photo and clicked again just to see the lovely form and shades of the flowers up close. I, of course, would not have been the one to know what it was, but am glad of the knowledge shared 🙂

    Hi, Medenilla has many species, but a few of them is endemic to the Philippines, M. magnifica being one of them. You watched it at the right time. Those flowers stay on the plant for a while.
