SOLVED: What is this flower?

lahore, Pakistan(Zone 10b)

Can someone confirm what is this flower? It does look like rangoon creeper but the colors of the flowers are not like rangoon creeper.


Kind regards,

Maybe some kind of Nicotiana (flowering tobacco)?

I agree with plantfreak78, it's some kind of Nicotiana. I love these annuals (at least where I live they are annuals) and have many in my flower beds.

The white ones may be Nicotiana alata but what are the red ones?

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

The red one is probably Nicotiana alata Red Domino It does come true from seed.

I don't think the flower structure of the red flower matches Nicotiana alata. The leaves that are visible are not shouting out "nicotiana" to me either.

As you know, Alta, I could very well be wrong about that....grin. wouldn't be my first time by any means.

Khabbab, can you elaborate on why you think it's not Quisqualis indica? The flower colours look right for Quisqualis, Rangoon Creeper to me!

Raleigh, NC(Zone 7b)

I agree w/Darwiniensis... looks like Quisqualis indica to me too. Here's a link to Google images showing pics with both red and white flowers: https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&site=imghp&tbm=isch&source=hp&q=Quisqualis+indica

I also tend to think it is Quisqualis indica but the colors are unusual ones.I have Quisqualis indica in my home but its colors are not that crimson red they are just pink and white. May be a new cultivar of Quisqualis indica?

my Q. indica has all three colors, red/pink/white. it's Q. indica.

To me the flowers other than the white look like a rc. The leaves however don't. Perhaps you have 2 plants in the pot?
