Bougainvillea, I imagine that these ones have been grafted as I think that is the only way you would get the different colours that you see here.

Thanks Ron, they're truly amazing and don't appear to be real at the first glance.

Someone put some time and love into their work !!

^^^^^Yes,  Bougainvillea like that is grafted... I am about to inherit one poor specimen from a neighbour... Not sure what they use as a root stock...

 

Meanwhile, this has perked up and lovely scent ... not sure of the name...

Rubber trees (Ficus} have completely different flowers. I have seen this one on Koh Kood and am still looking for the (Latin!) name/

Yeah, looking again, it's obviously not a rubber tree / Ficus... The flower reminds me of a Cistus, but foliage not! .....oh well!

 Those grafted bougainvillea look fantastic. I have seen natural combinations of purple and partly white, but these are absolutely beautiful.

Wat Yai Chaimongkol, Ayutthaya .
If you're ever nearby, worth a visit, there's a row of about 8 of them.
Some fine work indeed !!
