What are these ? 2

Posted by Devi (Chennai, India) on 24 July 2017 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Yes !! One blossomed...the bud. The owner told me that these were called Tennis Tree flowers / Park biglandulosa. In Tamil they call this Kikkili. There are variations in this too...But it did look beautiful :))) Worth waiting.
Now I am waiting to see what will happen if these filament like petals fall off!
What will the seeds be like ? I must wait.

The seed from this bud might well be worth waiting for Devi. You might grow them.
