Flower of the Day – Red Bougainvillea

I saw this at a garden center a long time ago. Finally found out it is called a Bougainvillea. It was pretty tall, kind of like a shrub. I like how there is a tiny white flower part in the center.

This one was at the garden center, and was pretty tall. I’m wondering why there was a tiny white flower on the red petals.

Update: I finally found out that this flower is a Bougainvillea!

Pretty red flowers on a bushy like plant, and has a tiny white flower in the middle of the red petals.

Flower of the Day – Desert Willow (Chilopsis)

Flower of the Day – Desert Willow (Chilopsis)

***

Bright pink flowers on slender green leaves.

These were outside the hospital where I had an appointment yesterday. A guy passing by said these were Desert Willows. We do see these all over town.

From a Wiki article:

…it has willow-like leaves, but it is not a true willow – being instead a member of the catalpa family.

It is a shrub or tree native to the southwestern United States and Mexico. It is commonly seen in washes and along riverbanks.
