Couroupita guianensis - Cannonball tree

This flower is used in prayer offerings by the Hindus. This flower is fragrant. It always reminds me of sea anemones but it is not the flower that determines the name of this tree. If you have seen the fruits, you will know why. Between fruits and flowers, I am more attracted to the latter and this being the case, I have somehow forgotten about the fruits even though they were dangling heavily from the trunk of the trees.
