Purple Thunbergia (Native: Malaysia)
Beautiful thunbergia from the Vine Garden of Putrajaya Botinalcal Garden. In the forest, vines are supported by tree crowns, high above the ground, which make them difficult to be seen and appreciated from below. However, in the Vine Garden of Putrajaya Botanical Garden, the vines are supported by pergolas made of local hardwood. I can't resist taking photos of this beautiful flowers of thunbergia which very much gives the surrounding a romantic mode. Hmmm....
