Very Wild Flowers

Jude invites us to share images of wild flowers for the month of May, and this one is about as wild as you can get. Luckily she doesn’t seem to say that they can’t be exotic, because this one was taken on the banks of Kinabatanga river in Borneo.

I don’t know what it is, it looks quite like a streptocarpus, but I think they originate in South Africa? Visit Jude to join her Garden Challenge, which has a different them each month.

  1. It does look like a bit like a Streptocarpus , but this looks like a climber. After a quick search I think it might be Thunbergia laurifolia, the laurel clockvine or blue trumpet vine, which is native to that part of the world. I have seen similar in the RHS Wisley glasshouse. Very exotic. I like πŸ™‚

    1. Ah yes brilliant, that could well be it, I think it was scrambling beside a path in the forest. like a weed. Isn’t black eye susan a thunbergia?

  2. Exotic indeed. Wildflowers in Borneo! Such a delicate flower, and a fertilizer at work. When were you in Borneo? And for how long? What a life of travelling adventure.

    I’m tied to Warsaw by the name of my blog and by the absence of my archive. But you remind me that I did see orchids in Croatia – and on the Nerrigundah road!

    1. Christmas 2009 for just three weeks, it was amazing but long enough for someone who gets as many bites as I do! I could never forget your Aussie orchids πŸ™‚

I would love to hear from you . . .
