Medinilla magnifica, Rose Grape, Malaysian Orchid, Chandelier Tree
A native to the Philippines, blooming Medinillas are very pretty. Medinilla thrives in shaded conditions and moist soil, growing lush tropical foliage and cluster after cluster of orchid-like pink blooms. The buds are baby pink, the flowers turn to a deeper pink, then magenta and finally dark red like sweet ripe cherries.
No one wants flowers to blush unseen or waste their sweetness.

Hi!Stunning beautiful shots. They are miracle flowers. Thanks for sharing.
Such axotic flowers. Unfortunately they would not survive the cold winter in Norway. So I enjoy your photos instead:)
Really looks like a chandelier. So beautiful. It's my first time to see this flower, Luna.
My late visit here.
Beautifully composed shots of a pretty flower - thanks for sharing Miranda.
