Dear Friends,

Vanakkam! Greetings from Chennai.

Yesterday evening as I was leaving the office (at Chennai lat=12.965223, lon=80.210655), got to see these bright colourful flowers on a creeper spreading over . Prosopis. There were some striking similarities to the passiflora. Would like to learn the ID of this flower.

Thank you.

With kind regards,

Dear Friends,

Vanakkam! Greetings from Chennai.

Yesterday evening as I was leaving the office (at Chennai lat=12.965223, lon=80.210655), got to see these bright yellow colourful flowers on a newly sprouted plant. (Hasn’t been there for long). The underside of the flowers had several brown spots like polka dots. The plant had compound leaves, with a woody, but weak stem

Would like to learn the ID of the plant.

This beautiful flower belongs to Oxystelma esculentum (now there is a name change, i think) of Asclepiadaceae. Tamil Name: Kulaththu paalai.
