Temple Flower (Plumeria)

Plumeria (common name Frangipani) is a genus of flowering plants of the family that includes Dogbane: the Apocynaceae. It contains 7–8 species of mainly deciduous shrubs and small trees. They are native to Central America, Mexico, the Caribbean, and South America as far south as Brazil but have been spread throughout the world’s tropics. The name Leelawadee (originating from Thai) is found occcasionally.

Photo taken during a trip to India last year. The photo was taken in Bangalore. I have this bad habit of clicking flowers wherever I see a pretty bunch. 🙂

Flowers are what make a garden worth visiting. And I am always on the lookout for such Gardens. A birdbath, a bench, a few statues, a few bushes and a whole lot of flowering plants. The weather should be perfect too to enjoy this beauty.  What better than Bangalore, India.
