I was pleasantly surprised to spot a beautiful little flower on a hedge opposite my home. I am not sure of its name and gave it a name “Fiery sparks” but on a Google check a similar looking flower is called Grevillea ‘Winpara Gem’ a red spike flower. Oh oh Stop Press I have told the correct name and it is Passiflora!

Fiery sparks

Well friends if you know the correct name please do share it for the benefit of all of us. And I thank my dear friend Ranjana 🙂 🙂 for letting me know the correct name.

      Hey Deepa I’ve made a number of attempts to propagate thru’ cuttings but I’d did not work. And unfortunately there were never any fruits to get their seeds.

      Hope you understand. 😦
      My best wishes and good luck to you.
