The luscious Rudrapalaash! #ThursdayTreeLove

Commonly known as African Tulip tree, botanically the Spathodea campanulata and locally known as Neerukayi mara or pickari due to the water that squirts from it when pressed, this one is hard to miss especially when in bloom.

The flamboyant red-orange blooms are a characteristic of September and were on my mind, now that we are almost at the end of the month. And, as luck would have it, these beauties greeted me, right outside our apartment, when I had to step out for buying some veggies yesterday morning!

Below here is a picture of the same trees clicked from the terrace, sometime in June… all green and lush!


Joining this week’s edition of #ThursdayTreeLove hosted by Parul. The linky goes live on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month. Hop over to see and enjoy more tree pictures and stories!

If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog and link it back to her latest #thursdaytreelove post.

Until next time!

Cheers 🙂

  1. These are beautiful, Priya. Like the Pink Trumpet, these red flowers also define the flora of Bangalore. Thank you for sharing and making me think of these flowers around my neighborhood.
    See you on the 22nd!
