Snow Blooms in the Tropical




.
These Bleeding Heart Vine had gloriously put out their bells nicely. Love those white little blooms, so innocently white.
.
I guess Autumn Belle was right, it was really in time for Deepavali!
.

.
I found this Bleeding Heart Vine plant growing at the side of the park near my house. Normally children play football in this place. And again, its sort of a composite dump site of all pruned plants and all.
.
I had managed to collect few reed orchid plant & varigated bougainvilla branches from here too. But to say the success rate of getting this bougainvilla to root and grow is in the experimental stage. I had also found some species of dumbcane and phildendron wildly growing here.
.
(before I can take some more pictures, my batteries gone flat - probably would take the pic. next week or so)
.
I'm still thinking whether to rescue this vine or leave it here until I get my garden mess and space sorted.
Till then, I have sometime to consider about it.
.
.
The roses bloomed sheepishly, not much like those past glories, just adequate and simply white.
.


.
Finally the Orange Jasmine, I got a nice lovely shot that satisfy what I want to show. Unlike those jasmine flowers, this one is actually a citrus plant - very close to a lime flower.
Good thing there is no thorns, I had enough with them feeding those caterpillars.

  1. What beautiful flowers...
    And you say that people dump these? What a wonderful find!
    I'm getting snow right now. Though I love it, from a gardeners standpoint, you're living in paradise!

  4. With a name like orange jasmine, it must smell heavenly! I wish we could share floral fragrance via blog.

  5. That bleeding heart vine is pretty incredible (and incredibly pretty). Do rescue it, if it needs rescuing. I can smell the jasmine in my mind. I agree with VW -- garden bloggers need smell-o-vision!

  6. James, these bleeding hearts are in full bloom now, the red centres are like the bright flames of Deepavali lamps, the Festival of Lights. How wonderful! Is the orange jasmine fragrant? It looks like the very very fragrant bunga kemuning that I see near the Gedung Raja Abdullah compound in Klang.

  7. I love the bleeding heart vine such a striking combination white and red. There are many different ones but all of them are exotic and wonderful. The white rose looks so soft against all this exotica and Jasmin is always a favourite. Plant dumps are interesting. In a warm climate it is easy to make cuttings from just about any plant.
    Thank you for your comment.

  8. That is a lovely bleeding heart with its delicate flower. Your blog is a work of your heart and nicely shown. I enjoyed my visit.

  9. Sue - People do dump plants as they sometimes grow too much. They had thrown away cuttings and I guess this one sprung up. I would consider it great to enjoy the 4 season just as you consider me living in paradise.
    What an irony.

    Thanks Steph. I too enjoy your garden as it gives me encouragement to see all your exotic garden plants which I rarely seen.

    Rosey - I guess it must be the same in your place. And above all - fall & winter is so close by that bring magic to your place.

    vw - Orange jasmine smells something close to frangipani, slightly sweeter & sharper. (Hope my explaination sounds right - I took few sniff just to get the best description as possible)

    Helen - thanks Helen, I will find a spot in my garden to rescue this plant. It will compliment well with my white variety.

    Belle - Yes, they are just in time for Deepavali just as you predicted. And yes, they are Bunga Kemuning. sometimes in evening, the fragrance is so great and floods the whole compound.

    Titinia - Bleeding Heart was a bit challenging for me when I first got the cuttings from my mum, it took almost 2 months for it to grow. I almost gave up as all the leaves fall off and none of the shoots came out until it was 1 month old. It may not be entirely true that all cuttings comes up well, Im still struggling with most species.

    Flowergardengirl - Thanks for the compliment, I find your blog too very beautiful & interesting.

  10. Happy Deepavali, James! And congrats too for getting your Bleeding Heart Vines to grow and flower just in time to celebrate the happy season...blooms are really fabulous, the other variety seen at the park is lovely too, but I prefer yours...the white and red contrast is more catchy! :-D

  11. Thanks Jacq for the greeting.
    Regarding Bleeding Heart, your information on your blog had motivated me to get this plant growing. I would have uprooted it thinking it was dead until I came to know from your blog that it would take really a long time for it to sprout. Thanks for your information.
