Clerodendrum bungei - Rose Glorybower(臭牡丹 - chou4 mu3 dan1)

If these flowers could dance, they would surely do a ballet
If they could sing, they would most likely put music into those
who cannot sing or dance or walk with a sweet sashay
when the wind blows, they will bring forth the scent of a rose
from within their tiny hearts that will chase the blues away
When you hear these flowers sing and witness their dance
The skies will be clear forever it would seem to be
Nothing will be still and they will work their charms
For you and me, only you and me.

Family: Verbenaceae
Origin: China, Indo-China
