As I Wander...

Living in tropical Malaysia, we tend to take the hot humid weather, thundery rainstorms and the spectrum of wild evergreen plants as a given.

Recently, I noticed more exotic plants making its way into landscaped home gardens, recreational parks, frontages of shopping malls and
commercial buildings.

Along kerb sides of residential streets and busy motorways, palms, trees and flowering plants make pleasant and interesting fringes.

This is a record of the various species "as I see it" for I am in awe of palms. Hence, my premise for this blog is that the global garden,
i.e. every physical garden (tended or untended), becomes a part of my, simply said, cyber palm garden. ;-)

The Lipstick Palm #2

Botanical Name : Cyrstotachys renda

Well, the countdown to the number of species at the KLCC Park has begun!  Not sure if able to ID or recognise all the 66? species (74 even, in some communication).  Having gone round the park twice, I didn't think there were that many but will try to. Hence, the start of TRY is here with some of the more common species and easily identifiable ones.

There were 2 groups of the clustering Lipstick Palms. The most obvious is the group on an 'island' nearest to the Mall.  They look fabulous but due to separation by a wide margin of shallow water, could only capture a rather distant shot.

The 2nd group of red palms were found around mid park.  Here's a merge of the two.

The colour red will always be an impressive nature's show stopper!
