Beautiful flowers pictures - Beautiful Indian flowers and trees (Part 3)

Beautiful flowers from the Indian garden


Beautiful flowers always leave us with a feeling of being refreshed and happy. They never fail to do that for me. I was out there getting some of these beauties for you, I came back feeling energized and filled with awe and wonder at nature and all she has to offer. I hope you would not only enjoy and leave the hub feeling refreshed, but you would also be filled with awe for nature and a renewed love to protect her. Inspiration from nature is never ending and I hope that these pictures I have put together would inspire you on and make your creative juices flow.

Amaltas is a spectacular looking tree in full bloom. It is considered the tree of prosperity. It is known as the golden shower or the cassia fistula or Indian Laburnum. It is a photographers delight, the flower clusters are long and drop down like flower curtains. It is a moderate-sized, deciduous tree grows up to 20 feet in height. It is a delight to watch the flowers swaying in the wind it is indeed a golden shower.

Datura Brugmansia or the angels trumpet flower as they are called. They are pendulous trumpet shaped flowers in different hues. Yellow, pink, white, orange and reds are common. They flower in profusion and look dramatic if they are placed in some showy corners of the garden. Here is a close up of a white trumpet flower and bunches of fading pink flowers.

The Java Cassia or Apple Blossom Cassia reaches up to 20 meters in height. The branches spread out like an umbrella and in flowering season they are filled with clusters of flowers of deep pink colored buds, that bloom into soft pink blooms and slowly fade into white bunches. It is easily one of the more pleasant and soft colored flowers of spring. The blooms are sweet smelling and attract a lot of insects, especially ants. Each flower looks like a rosette and bunches and bunches of flowers on the tree make it a veritable paradise for man to behold.

The Crimson Ipomea belongs to the same family as the morning glory. This is a runner and looks awesome on fences, trellis, and arches. They bloom in clusters offering a spectacular sight. In warm climates they flower almost throughout the year. Did you notice these flowers here are covered with red ants? Red ants seem to be drawn to them for the nectar and the fact that they afford a camouflage.

Mussaenda These leaf like flowers fill the plant and it looks like it is covered with snow. they have a tiny yellow star inside and look wonderful in the garden. They come in pink, peach, white and orange and are often called peach blossoms locally.They are specular when in full bloom and could be the most colorful of plants.

These little sunflower like flowers grow in the wild. I do not know the name of this flower but they seem to fill the place with beauty and color that you cannot leave the place with out feeling cheered up and bright.

This profusion of stars on big bushes are a common sight in Coorg. I could not find the name of this plant though I searched all I could. These look like clouds and look so stately and admist all the color and the beauty they hold their own place.

Cleome Sparkler ( Capparidaceae ) Spider Flower or Rocky Mountain Bee Plant. They come in different shades and thrive in the sun. These small bushes are stunning when they in full bloom and are show stoppers. These plants are pretty easy to care for.

These beautiful white lilies are huge, waxy beautiful and pleasant smelling. I found them growing wild on the hill slopes. I would be glad to know their name. They looked like huge waxy cups with slight stains of yellow and green.

The Rangoon creeper or the Quisqualis Indica or the Chinese honey suckle is a lovely shrub that acts like a runner. It is a shrub that grows up to three feet in height and then acts like a runner climbing on to hedges and other plants. They make stunning arches and look beautiful on fences. The pendulous pink and white blooms look gorgeous hanging down from the stems. The buds open into white blooms that gradually turn shades of pink and almost deep crimson before the dry up. The various shades of the flowers in a cluster is what makes the plant look exotic.

Morning glory or Ipomea Palmata is a common vine that climbs on to anything that is available. Here you have a tree ( a medium sized one at that) being covered by the profusion of flowers and almost chocked by the vine. They look beautiful on fences and trellis but care should be taken to see that they do not climb on to the other plants in the garden, pruning them and keeping them in shape will keep your garden neat and lovely.

Wow sofs, you've outdone yourself this time. These are absolutely stunning examples of nature's beauty. I particularly liked the Cleome Sparkler, and the Datura.

Those yellow flowers look much like yellow daisies.

Excellent pictures my dear.

Thank you Tim, I appreciate the kind words.

I enjoyed taking the pictures and putting the hub together. Your comment is much appreciated :)

Hi sofs! It's the first time that I've seen that amaltas. It's very beautiful and refreshing to look at. It must be more beautiful to look at personally with the sun out and a blue sky.

sofs 5 years ago Author

Tajsingh, I am glad that you got to see the Amaltas in this hub, It is need refreshingly beautiful. And yes you are right about it, it looks awesome against the blue sky.. I got to take this picture during the hottest time of the day and the light was too much.. and does not do justice to the real scene... but definitely the best I could do at that point :)

Beautiful Hub. I voted it UP, etc. I just published a Hub on the Rangoon Creeper which you picture here. I have one in yard on a chain link fence and it is now in full bloom and just beautiful.

May I link this Hub into mine. Read mine when you have time; maybe you would link mine to yours???

Thanks in advance, Mary
