Most gardeners would be familiar with the common Mickey Mouse Plant (Ochna kirkii).

This flowering Ochna integerrima was purchased from Thailand and planted at the hill walk end of Flora Stitches nearer to the Silver Garden.

It seems to flower about twice a year and these photos were taken on 17 Feb 10. The sepals are lighter pink compared to the redder sepals on the more common O. kirkii.
