Smile of Earth- 19

Exotic Flowers!

Good to be here after a long gapโ€ฆ. I might have missed many of your posts.
Here I am bringing a little cheer for all ๐Ÿ™‚ Each one of these flowers has an exquisite structure and are gorgeous. They are quite big and showy.

Glory Lily

Glory lily (Gloriosa superba) with itโ€™s flaming petals can never be missed, though it is generally not grown as a garden plant. The plant is poisonous and can cause fatalities, if consumed.
Night-blooming cereus is a member of the cactus family. As the name suggests, the flowers bloom at night and are gone by daybreak! The plant has flat ribbon-like stem and well adapted for tropical climate.
Scarlet passionflower (Passiflora coccinea) is an ornamental, woody climber and does not produce fruits like the commercially cultivated variety. At least, I havenโ€™t seen fruits on this plant, growing in my garden.
Water lily prefers a freshwater habitat. There are more than fifty species of water lilies. According to Indian mythology, lotus is the better half of sun while water lily is of moon. Water lilies symbolize innocence, purity, pleasure, celebration, rebirth, wellness and peace.
