Today's weather - sunny
This pink Arundina was planted at the Indian Garden but mine at home finally sent out a new shoot after so many months of growing it since I bought it at last year's World Orchid Conference in Nov 11. To me, I am not as amazed by this colour variety then the more common white-purple A. graminifolia (common name: Bamboo Orchid).

Back to this post, I am actually posting the beautiful plants at the Hub, which is also known as the rose. It is no coincidence that the flowers have a pink tinge or shade. These spectacular plants are namely as follows:

  • Plumeria 'Dwarf Singapore Pink'
  • Ceiba speciosa (common name: Silk Floss Tree)
  • Rondeletia leucophylla or Arachnothryx leucophylla (common name: Panama Rose)
  • Plumeria rubra variegated
  • Vinca rosea or Catharanthus roseus (common name: Periwinkle)
