We have a proposal indicating the plant pictured is Malaysian Orchid (Medinilla multiflora) I notice you have a few pics of the Medinilla also from Houston. j?

I've actually got pics of Medinilla multiflora from Davenport, St Louis, and Galvaston in my library.
Regarding the above entry from 2010, next to it in Picasa is this one
Thumb of 2017-11-11/jmorth/f138fc sign in bottom right describes flower as purple and white, maybe I thought the purple included pink and associated pic of said colors to the star fruit flower sign. Anyway, it was a long time ago. You can just remove if you like.

Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

The photo in question reminds me of Chandelier Tree (Medinilla cumingii)


The plant pictured in that last photo (with the Star Fruit sign is in lower right corner) is Pagoda Flower (Clerodendrum paniculatum)
