Flowers in a Winter greenhouse

Clerodendrum thomsoniae

The common name for this place is Bleeding Heart Vine.  The flower of this plant is a common flower essence used in healing one’s heart.  The essence is said to help to differentiate ones own emotions from others or to mend relationships that diminish ones own integrity.  Of course a few days after I took these picture, the flower opened up and the stamen popped out, ready to reproduce!  So delicate and intimate to witness the subtle transition of the plant.  Clerodendrum thomsoniae is native to West Africa.
