Cascading Blooms






I saw these pretty blooms inside our subdivision on my way home one time. When I returned with my sister Luchie days after, it was still blooming wildly along the perimeter fence of a house. Too bad I did not see anybody so I can ask for the name of these gorgeous flowers that seemed to be cascading like water down my hands. But I am confident, as always, that some of my flower friends would be able to identify it for me. ;-) And my flower friends are also blooming and sharing their exquisite blooms over at Maia's MacroFlowerSaturday and at TodaysFlowers of Santilli, Denise, Pupo and Sandy.

UPDATED! Tufa Girl and Jama identified this flower as the Rangoon Creeper or Quisqualis Indica and Gisela said it is Chinese Honeysuckle. Thanks a lot! You are all super flower lovers!

The big clusters of flowers are very showy. It is some kind of vine but I don't know its name either.
Lucky you, you can see these beauties all year long.

Thanks for the nice words!

They look like a great plant for the fence line - love the way they have a pendulous look about them. I will research them tose if they would grow herein Melbourne's temperate climate

I am late commenting.... in my part of the world it is called Rangoon Creeper - botanical names are always better as they work all around the world. Quisqualis indica - an article on wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quisqualis_indica
