Crape Jasmine

These are very common here in India. I’ve seen it everywhere but knew it only by the local name.
I found out yesterday about the English names.They seem to have three names Crape Jasmine, East Indian Rosebay and Pinwheel flower.
It doesn’t have a scent nor does it have any vibrant shades of color so they aren’t used for any decorative purposes.
I was really surprised that it was actually more useful than typical garden flowers because the plant is supposed to have medicinal properties.

The Last Flowers

These flowers only bloom for a month or two every year. The one in the photo was one of the last three of this year’s batch. Now have to wait a year to see these guys again.

P.S  I was told that this is a kind of Lilly. If anyone knows the name then please let me know.
