  8. Dear friends, thanks to your visits and comments.

    We grow the plants in two clay pots for more than a year. As we were jogging along the pedestrian walkway one day, I cut a branch of a blooming plant by the walkway side. We propagate them in pots and they grow ever since. I hope the municipal people don't mind...

    Brief description of the plant:-
    Name:Pseudomussaenda flava, Mussaenda lutea, Mussaenda luteola, Mussaenda glabra, Mussaenda incana
    Family: Rubiaceae
    Dwarf Yellow Mussaenda
    Origin: Tropical Africa, Asia, and Malaysia

    Golden star shaped blooms are surrounded by creamy yellow bracts. Large sepals in palest yellow-white and small yellow corollas. This frost-tender tropical shrublet likes partial to full sun and moist, freely draining soil. It can be propagated by cuttings. An ever-blooming, small, evergreen shrub excellent in containers. It blooms especially well during the warm months. Grow it in light shade to full sun, and you will be delighted by its bright splash of color for many months each year.
