Unknown beauty



A while ago I posted this from Aria.
I asked her if she knew what the flower was and she said no but posted more pictures.
So here is more of the same unknown.





Nice eh?

Oh the closeup helped. I think that's some variety of vinca. I've never seen it so thick and colorful though.
 
Kees, that is Jamesbrittenia grandiflora (Galpin) Hilliard, common name: Wild Phlox


Over 100 species of Jamesbrittenia are found mostly in South Africa, with a few found in tropical Africa. The plants of this genus are hardy and may be grown almost anywhere in South Africa.
 
Hi Bonita

These shots were taken either in Japan or Taiwan.
Does that make sense
 
Yup. It's still phylox....we have it here, too.
