Flower of the Day, Jan 27, 2018

Does anyone know the name of this beautiful flower?


By forgottenman’s suggestion, here is a photo of the entire spray of flowers. They are about a foot long. En mass and from a distance, they look like wisteria, but the flower is completely different.

For Cee’s Flower Prompt.

    My comment was going to be just “ooh!” — then I saw your question. It looks almost like an orchid of sorts, but I truly don’t know what it is. Have you found Tony Tomeo’s blog yet — he’s a horticulturist specialist working in trees in NoCal, but seems to know about flowers too.

      It is a petrea volubilis, also known as a queen’s wreath.. I put another photo of it on my blog later and discovered the name but didn’t go back and put it on this one. Good eye, Mirna.. and thanks for identifying it!!
