Calotropis gigantea - Crown flower (牛角瓜 - niu2 jiao3 gua1)

Flowers that I will vote as most unique amongst all that I have seen and photographed. These shrubs were thriving on Sentosa Island when I chanced upon them in the early part of this year. They are like jewels that have been handcrafted to perfection. It was the most thrilling find of my flower-watching life.
Common Name: Crown Flower, Giant Milkweed, Ivory Plant
Origin: India, Indonesia
