Beautiful flowers of summer
Now that the Jacaranda and Tabebuia have withered and their trees are standing bare, here’re the Queen’s Flower(Giant Crape Myrtle) and Gulmohar(Royal Poinciana) to make up for the loss! Both of these are now in full bloom and are such a pretty sight that it is difficult not to take a moment and simply admire!
The flowers are gorgeous and you will find the Queen’s Flower in beautiful shades of lavender, pink, purple. The petals are distinct and usually wear a crumpled look. The flowering season is from April-June. Queen’s Flower is also known as Giant Crepe Myrtle, Queen’s Crepe Myrtle, Pride of India, Banaba.
The red/orange flowers against the bright sky of the summer make for a wonderful sight! The Gulmohar is probably the most associated flower with Bangalore. The flowering season is again from April-June. The Gulmohar is also known as Royal Poinciana, Flamboyant Tree, Peacock Flower, Flame of the Forest.
Take a moment and enjoy the flowers!
