the coral aphelandras are blooming

the coral aphelandras in bukit batok nature park are blooming. actually, you can see them all the year round but this time of the year, more plants seem to be flowering. this plant, which originates from south america, can grow as tall as 3m. the flowers appear to last for a few weeks. it seems, in temperate countries, they bloom in winter.

if you are coming by the main entrance to bukit batok nature park, take the first turning on your right. about 150m into this walking track, you will be able to see the coral aphelandras on both sides of the track.

i think so too but most of the park users just walk past them without giving it a second look.
