Turnera ulmifolia

Family: Turneraceae
Origin: Tropical America
Common name: Holy Rose, Lidah Kucing

I found this plant growing on the crevices of walls and drains on Ann Siang Hill Park. Truly amazing how this plant manages to survive in concrete surroundings looking no less beautiful than it does in a garden or a forest floor.
