This beautiful tree with its purple flowers is so new to me. I am not sure if this tree grows in India. But I have spotted a few here in Texas.


Have a nice day friends. 🙋

      Oh thank you Sue for blessing my Jugnoo blog 🙂 I thought Myrtle trees are in UK too?

      • They maybe Dilip, within some flower Garden or large estaste with such shrubs,but If they are I have not seen them.. We do have wonderful Lilac trees out in spring though with similar colouring of blossoms..:-)

        UK in spring is very beautiful. We used to spend our holidays years ago in London and loved it.

        I am sorry Sue for not noticing your lovely comment. Have a lovely weekend.

    Dear Sir

    I want to plant kafir lime, thai basil and galangal. Can you spare some seeds or saplings, by the way good blog thanks

  4. Living in Virginia, this is a common tree in many a yard and across our town’s boulevards. I never tire of seeing it–especially in bloom.

    A Crepe Myrtle, but I cannot see the flowers close enough. It is a tree, not a dwarf bush. Queen’s Myrtle Tree is the most splendid to me.

    It is grown in India as well. If you read about it on Wikipedia it will say: “deciduous and evergreen trees and shrubs native to the Indian subcontinent, southeast Asia, northern Australia and parts of Oceania, cultivated in warmer climates around the world”.

      Hi and welcome. Thanks for your interest and the inputs. I’ll surely make it a point get more details from some friends who are more seasoned gardeners.

      Kind of you and regards.

    I think this is Taman (तामण) the state flower of Maharashtra. Not such a rare sight in Pune or Mumbai.
