Gustavia gracillima/gracillipis

Family: Lecythidaceae
Heaven Lotus, Narrow-Leaved Gustavia
Origin: Colombia
A small to medium size tree with beautiful thin green leaves and very showy, dark pink flowers.
Leaves are large and long, the tree has a very tropical look.

Had seen it at Jeeja Mata Udhyan.
