Bernieh:

I love all the Combretum species...they all are very spectacular flowering vines, shrubs and trees. Most grow well here.

Yes thanks Delonix, Deida, Balcony and Sunblest - this shrub is a beauty and I just love it's unusual bloom. It has those star-shaped flowers and out of the centre of each grow those long stamens.

Bernieh:

The star-shaped flowers are common in the Combretaceae family.
