2 might be portulaca or carnation or mum (need a better look at the leaves)

5 some type of bromeliad

8 looks like a bearded iris to me

9 is peace lily

11, 12 & 14 look like hibiscus (aka rose of sharon or rose mallow)

can you take pics that show the foilage/growth patterns, too? sometimes the leaves can help with id.

8 ~ Cattleya Orchid
11 & 12 ~ Turnera ulmifolia
13 ~ Bauhinia blakeana
14 ~ I see this one is labled Mandevilla splendens, and perhaps it is,
but what I can see of the foliage looks like Adenium obesum , to me. Duh

I agree that photos including a bit more foliage might help with a few of the others. wink

Not too sure, but three looks like a pink st john's wort. six might be a lords and ladies (does it have spotted green leaves?) Maybe seven is a yellow datura? Your pics are great!

Hi! smile

Thank you so much for those of you who have helped in identifying the flowers. I'm really glad to have identified a portion of the flowers.

Picture 2: Most probably not Carnation, due to its size: about two centimetres. But from pictures of Portulaca I viewed on the Net, it could be it, or a related species. Their leaves look almost the same (succulent and leathery). However, unlike Portulaca, this has more petals (very soft to the touch - I love it!). I replaced the photo with one which is more zoomed out.

Picture 3: This is actually one of my favourite flowers. I saw it in the woods during one of my trekkings a few weeks back. It is too bad however that its species is still unclear. It looks a lot like St. John's Wort. But I see some difference in the flower buds and leaves. Could they be related? Someone suggested that it as Cratoxylum sp. But, probably not. Hm.. I'm not sure.

Picture 6: No, it doesn't have spotted green leaves.

Picture 7: Nope, not yellow Datura. (Thanks for the compliment, kennyso!) Not Trumpet Vine either. I can't find pictures of Chalise Cup at Google.

Picture 9: I searched 'Peace lily' on Wikipedia, and yes, it resembles a lot. The genus is Spathiphyllum. However, today, I went to the bookstore and saw the scientific name to be Spathiphyllopsis minahasse. Hm.. Close.. but why the difference? When I Googled 'Spathiphyllopsis Minahasse', the results were mostly related to an artist named Van Nooten.

flower 10: I'm still not sure what it is, but I don't think so it is Japanese Magnolia. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I've provided another photo of the flower from a slightly different angle (picture 15) to have a better view of the leaves. It is however not the same flower in 10, (a different bloom - taken 2 weeks later). Notice that this one has 7 petals, as opposed to the prior one - only 6. I wonder what caused it.

Picture 14: Yes, I think it is Adenium obesum. But, what's the difference in floral appearance between Adenium obesum and Mandevilla splendens? How do we differentiate?

#s10 & 15 are Magnolia, perhaps "Little Gem" which is a dwarf cultivar
of Magnolia grandiflora ("Southern Magnolia").

The plant in your photos appears to be small/young,
and "Little Gem" does have a tendency to bloom at an early age.
The flowers of M. grandiflora can exhibit from 6 to 12 petals.

Here's a brief description for some of the flowers. Hope this helps. wink

Picture 1: Small, between 1.5 to 2 centimetres.

Picture 10: Large, about 8 to 9 centimetres.

Picture 4: This is more of a weed. But to me, pretty, nevertheless. The flower is small, about a centimetre.

3 to me, does NOT look like a St. John's wort..
I thought they were yellow..
*The shape of the flower and the stamen's do look like the "shape" of them" but not in color..*
I am not 100% sure of this, but in any reading I've come acrossed and the 2 varieties I have,
both are yellow..

Generally speaking, Mandevilla flowers are larger,
but the best way to tell the two apart is by the appearance of the entire plant,
rather than just the flowers.
While the flowers are quite similar, the plants are remarkably dis-similar.

I wonder if #16 might be Arachis glabrata .

Very happy to share info and help if I can.

Don't know if this site
can help you nail down the cultivar of Spathiphyllum in photo #9.

Oh, and as to the 'Spathiphyllopsis Minahasse' reference,
Duh I must admit, I've got no clue. shocked
I wonder if Van Nooten is a contemporary artist?
If not, perhaps it is an archaic term.

I'd guess that it's a Portulaca grandiflora hybrid .

I have a picture of #1 in my Web Shots folder, in lavendar, which will not let me copy or transfer. But, it's common name is Butterfly Pea; its other name is Clitoria Ternata.

Thanks again for the info, zuzu's petals! smile

Hm.. Yes, I think 'Spathiphyllopsis Minahasse' is an archaic term, because I saw a website mentioning: Spathiphyllopsis J. E. Teysmann & S. Binnendijk, 1863.

About the Portulaca flower, yes, now that looks more like the one in my photo! Thanks! You know, the first time I saw it, which was at my university, I fell in love with it. It looked like a rose, just much smaller and dainty. Hm.. Now, I wonder if it's still there, because the last time I passed by that area, the gardeners were clearing the flower bed. ters

Nope, it's not Butterfly Pea, though at first glance they may look similar.
