Mesmerized By The Beautiful Flowers In Fraser's Hill.

After we have checked into Arundel bungalow and settled our luggage in our room, we couldn't wait to explore the compound. We noticed the beautiful blooms as we drove in through the opened gate. Of all the trips we have made to this place, this was the best, with the place full of beautiful flowers and plants. We went out armed with our cell phone cameras to capture the blooming beauties.
Hairy balls the size of a tennis ball. Also named Balloon plants, Swan plants or Gomphocarpus Physocarpus. This is our first time coming across these plants.
The plants can grow taller than 6 feet or more.
It has small white flowers.
Opened up one of the hairy balls to satisfy our curiosity.
I am not sure, but can these fiery red flowers be the Firespike flowers?
Yellowish brown Dahlia flowers.
I love these transparent looking Pink Dahlias.
Dark Orangey Red Dahlia
Purple Dahlias
White Dahlias
White Dahlias
Small Red and White Anthuriums
Purple Hydrangea
Purple Hydrangea
Red and Yellow Cannas.
I love these beautiful pink Brugmansia flowers
Lovely pink colour
Unknown Purple wild flowers, Can someone help me with the identification of these 2 purple flowers? *(melastoma/tibouchina)
Another unknown purple flowers. *(Cleome)



Well, then, what shall I do? I will do both.

 I will pray in unknown tongues and also

in ordinary language that everyone understands.

I will sing in unknown tongues and also in ordinary language

so that I can understand the praise I am giving.

(1 Corinthians 14:15, The Living Bible-TLB)

  10. Nancy, the flowers are all so beautiful! That last one, the unknown purple flowers is called Spider Flower (Cleome). Many years ago I bought the seeds at the supermarket and planted. The ones that grew were pink and white. They are very beautiful but prone to caterpillar attack. So eventually they all died. I have not been able to get the seeds since.

    1. The purple flower above it, is it Bunga Kamunting?

      Delete
    2. Thank you, Phong Hong. I would love to plant the Spider flowers plant but if it is prone to pest, then I better not. They are very pretty.

      Delete
    3. Phong Hong, I found out the name of the 2nd last purple flower. It is not Bunga Kemunting. I googled and it is called Melastoma.
