ID FLOWER : What is the name of this beautiful flower?

Postby youvee » Sat Jun 28, 2014 3:44 pm

Hi All,

I came across today, on a friend's FB page, two images of a beautiful flower which I have not seen till date. The FB friend, who has this plant (in a pot) in India, mentioned the name of this flower as Mayflower and that it is also known as Fireball. A net search for both names could not lead me to any helpful info or image of this flower.

Could anyone here please confirm the name (either scientific name or common/market name) of this beautiful flower/plant? I intend to buy this plant for my backyard (direct into soil). Any help will be much appreciated. An indication of a possible source in Melbourne would also be great.
