Dear Friends,
As per the legend,Hakagala Botanical Garden in Sri Lanka was known as " Ashokvan" in the time of Ramayana and Seeta was kept in this very garden before her rescue.This garden has got variety of flowers along with old trees which date back to more than 200 years.
 I m posting a photograph of a beautiful flower from this Garden. Kindly identify the same.
Thanx,
Shobha

Dear Shobha ji,
This one looks like a Abutilon sp. (Could be  Abutilon pictum --- Malvaceae Family).
