Peacock Flower - Pink Glory
One of the various hues available with this plant.Comparitively rarer to the common form.Common name: Peacock Flower • Hindi: guletura • Manipuri: Krishnachura • Marathi: Sankasur • Telugu: Ratnagandhi • Kannada: Kenjige • Oriya: Krishnochuda • Tamil: Mayurkonrai, Mayil Kondrai,Konnai • Malayalam: Settimandaram • Bengali: Krishnachura, Radhachur• Sanskrit: Sidhakya Botanical name: Caesalpinia pulcherrima forma flava Family: Caesalpiniaceae (Gulmohar family) This beautiful treelet, whose place of origin is uncertain, is sometimes called Dwarf Poinciana due to the resemblence of its flowers and leaves to those of Gulmohar. They are botanically related but Peacock flower plant grows only to a height of about 3 meters, retains its leaves throughout the year, and blooms continuously. Flowers, which appear in clusters on long erect stems, are smalled than those of Gulmohar and have exceptionally long stamens and a prominent pistil which protrudes from the center. The most common color is red-orange, but one variety has pure yellow flowers. Thanks : Flowers of India http://www.flowersofindia.in/catalog/slides/Peacock%20Flower%20yellow.html
