I saw some pretty plants and flowers in Sri Lanka. Some in the temples:
Some in the Royal Botanical Gardens in Kandy:
Some in Brief Garden, a private residence near Aluthgama whose grounds are open to visitors.
This was my favourite. Apparently it’s called a Black Bat Flower.
And some we saw on safari. Our guide pointed this one out to us. It’s called Glory Lily and it’s highly toxic and is often used by people wishing to commit suicide.
Oh, and this particular species is in the genus Littonia…
