Hoya carnosa Flowers

Hoya is in the family Asclepiadaceae, which have star-shaped flowers with five points. These are about fingernail size. The white colour is warmed by a touch of pastel pink. Note the large drops of nectar on some flowers.

Olympus EM-1 (manual mode), Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f14 or f16 for the closer shots, f10 for the wider views, triple flash hand-held.

Rosa roxburghii Chestnut Rose (Originally "Dog Rose")

I originally posted this elsewhere (but omitted to do so here) as "Dog Rose" but, having examined the fruit, I realise that this is Rosa roxburghii, the Chestnut Rose. It has characteristically spine fruits (hips), of which I will be posting images in a post of its own.

The stereo is crosseye.

Olympus EM-1, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/125 at f11, hand-held, cloudy sky.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Ginger With A Twist

This is the Kahili Ginger Hedychium gardnerianum, the commonest ginger in cultivation as a houseplant or greenhouse plant. The inflorescence is a gift for stereo. However, I am featuring this particular plant for a special reason.

This one has a leaf stem tightly furled around the main stem. It has curled its way upwards and then partly back down again on the other side. The cause of this is a mystery. The plant was close to/touching the greenhouse glass but that would not cause this extreme of abnormal growth. Even looking closely at the plant in life, it is difficult to see exactly the shape of the dysfunctional growth.

The first image shows just the tip of this at the bottom of the frame (bottom, right of middle). I darkened that image to intensify the colour.

Olympus EM-1 (Aperture Priority), Lumix G Vario 14-45mm Aspherical, f8 at 38mm
