I posted about the Beaumontia several times and this one finally bloomed with multiple flowers. But I have my doubts on the identity of the species now because there was another Beaumontia within the nursery that had reddish sepals.

I would have to find some time to compare the differences between the leaves and flowers before I can conduct more searches to establish their identities. There are at least 4 species of Beaumontia that I saw online but somehow none of them seemed to have prominent and stunningly red sepals.

Between this and the one with reddish sepals, I definitely prefer the latter because it looks more showy.

NB on 5 Nov 10: I am renaming this as Beaumontia grandifolia.
