I came across this small red-flowered Snakeweed Plant a few months ago.

So cuttings were taken for our nursery to propagate. Finally I planted it in HortPark's Car Park Garden around the Chinese New Year period and these photos were taken on 17 Feb 10.

The flowers may be much smaller than the more common blue-flowered Stachytarpheta indica planted throughout various areas of HortPark, but they are actually quite conspicuous. Too bad, the photos did not capture the right intensity of the red colour.
