HortPark Flowers - The Colour Series (Purple)

Asystasia gangetica or Coromandel which is the common name. Either one has no appeal for me. I am just sorry that such a dainty flower with such an interesting petal formation has such a complicated name. This flower originates in India and Malaysia. I found it growing in a circular flower bed next to the Butterfly enclosure that unfortunately was not open.

Peeking through the glass window, I saw this elegant butterfly (Coco Chanel designer wings) feeding.
