This is an assignment in school.
Please help identify each one.
#1 looks like Wrightia antidysenterica,(Snowflake Plant).
#2 could be Ixora red flower.
I don’t know the white flowering plantis.
However, I think that the red flowering plant is a Penta, and belongs to the Rubiaceae family. Some of its common names are: Star flower, Egyptian star flower, star cluster
The last one is a type of Boxer Shrub. Good luck!
Ohhh … I think Quantumwave is right about Ixora. But google these two responses because they’re dead ringers for each other!
And I think she/he is right about the white flower too!
Count the petals on the red flowers in photo #2. I see four.
When I looked up “Star flower” and “Egyptian star flower”, I see five petals on each bloom.
I think Ixora is the correct identification of plant #2.
Just tryin’ to help…..
