Dear Friend,
Attaching images of two beautiful flowers.You may like these.
( a ) Brownea Sp.This is what K S Gopalaswamiengar says about Brownea,in his book Complete Gardening in India
" The Browneas have been introduced from Central America and Trinidad,are very ornamental,very slow growing garden trees,bearing large clusters of rose or crimson flowers."
( b ) Cannon-Ball Tree ( Couroupita guianensis ).The common name is approprate,as the fruit looks like CANNON BALL.It is said that Swami Vivekananda liked this flower And this is the reason why the tree is planted in Ramkrisha Maths/Ashrams.

Dear sir: Number 2...the very large almost 7 inches long samara could
be from a tree from south america I have seen in a western botanical
garden .... a legum... yellow jacaranda ... may be one is planted in
Bangalore... were there jacaranda type trees near by your collection
site? the sweep of the fibres from the wing remind me of the one I
have seen...neither photographed nor collected and saved... the seed
itself looks fuzzy...is it? could be a drying effect of sooo long a
time..since 1994... regards, Usha di....
