Finally - the first full bloom!


By Bernieh

Finally - the first full bloom! (Medinilla magnifica)

The bloom is so heavy that it's dragging the poor baby branch down into the portulacas below.

Combination looks pretty, though, huh?

Bernieh, is it a Medinilla?

Medinilla flowers generally are pendulous. This species look like cummingii...which is the species I have.

Medinilla magnifica - Malaysian Orchid -- has large pink bracts before the flowers buds are developed and open.

Hi Delonix - the nursery must have got it wrong. This plant was labelled as magnifica when I bought it - I'll have to google some images and check it. Thanks.

You're welcome. It is just as beautiful! I love Medinilla...I know many species are becoming available, which seem to grow well here. Medinilla magnifica is a tough plant to grow here though.
