    Is it just me, or do others see the twisting array of the corolla as slightly reminiscent of Plumeria?

    Priscilla has posted several other very nice photos of this tree on her flickr account – here are query results for it on her photostream: https://www.flickr.com/search/?user_id=65434132%40N04&view_all=1&text=Meriania%20nobilis

    I love how the flowers look like they are outlined in pen, on most photos, not just on the photo here where you can see that. And the colour combination with the buds and the aging flowers is wonderful.

    Is this related to Tibuchina ? Rita.

    The leaves are as interesting as the flowers! In the commercial site, from the link given above, there is even information on germinating the seeds and growing it. It blooms all year in the right condition. Lovely flowers!

    Spectacular and beautiful flowers, but not a very elegant tree from the example in the link. I am not familiar with tropical trees but Clerodendrum trichotomum and some of the Bignoniaceae are far prettier trees, though their flowering season is more limited.

    Yes, related to Tibouchina – notice the similar stamens, reminiscent of a spider, some say……..
