Bangkok’s flowers are very beautiful and delicate. Unfortunately they do not hold up well under the desert sun. I felt fortunate to catch this lovely flower in a pretty good light. The foliage is a different story: it always looks great! I can understand now why some gardeners cut off the flowers and just grow Bangkok for the vigorous and dramatic foliage. Not that I would do that, mind you!

Bangkok has numerous synonyms – different names for the same plant. They include ‘Striped Beauty’, Christ’s Light’, ‘Nirvana’, ‘Minerva’ amd ‘King of Siam’.
