White AlderWednesday, June 10, 2009
It's a rare chance! This stretch of flowers are located on a slope, just outside my church, between the fence and the drain. They are like wild flowers or weed but too beautiful to be missed :-)
The flower is yellowish white and there is a yellow glow around the black centre. Little filaments are seen in the centre.
This 'flower weed' is called White Alder, a perennial herb and Turnera Subulata is its botanical name. It is native to West Indies, Brazil and Central America.
The above pictures were taken in the late morning when the sun was blazing hot. And in the afternoon, I noticed that the flower closes up.
