Another plant you see a lot in Kuala Lumpur. Can anyone tell what it is? It's a screen shot capture so the detail isn't all that great.

That's close .. I think that might be it. Even if it's not, I'm going to try and find seeds for that one!

Bougainvillea, lots of cultivars. the only thing I don't like on them is their thorns. Usually we don't grow it from seeds though, but cuttings

Thanks! I thought it might be that and looked for the tiny white flowers in the middle but couldn't see any.

My first thought is also Bougainvillea. I zoomed in and enlarged the photo and I don't see the tiny white blooms of Bougies but that could just be the photo and my poor eyesight. Smiling From what I can see of the base of the plant and growth habit, I'd say Bougainvillea.

The leaves look too large and blooms don't appear large enough for Mussaenda.
