I have subequently found the name, Tristellateia australasiae, for the bright yellow flowers with the red stamens, which I am submitting as my choice of Flora for the Year
It has been a difficult business, this choosing; every other flower seemed to be staking its claim for my favour.
I first saw the Vining Galphimia at Dr. Mahadeshwaraswamy's residence in Chennai and admired the profusion of flowers next to his front door.
Since I have not seen another such creeper in Chennai, I was thrilled when the specimen which I had bought in Bangalore actually produced some blooms.
(Most of my Bangalore acquisitions don't like our Chennai weather.)
The climber is also called "Shower of Gold Climber" and "Vining Milkweed".
A Peaceful, Healthy and Happy 2011 to all!
