White Wing

Pseudomussaenda flava


Saw this beautiful plant at the resort house the family rented for an outing. The yellow flowers are always accompanied by a single white petal. Viewed from a distance, they look like white butterflies resting beside the yellow flowers. ID: Pseudomussaenda flava, synonyms: Mussaenda flava, Mussaenda lutea, Mussaenda luteola, Mussaenda glabra, Mussaenda incana, Vignaldia luteola, Virecta lanceolata. Family: Rubiaceae. Common Names: Dwarf Yellow Mussaenda, Dwarf Mussaenda, White Wing.
