These are in full bloom during Sankrant festival in January, thats how it is known as Sankrant Vel in Marathi.
Experts, please do correct me if wrong.


Thanks … This woody climber is supposed to be common in Delhi, especially in Delhi University, but unfortunately I have yet to capture it.


Close up was taken at a flower show in Mumbai.
Try finding it later this month or early Feb and you will be able to capture it.
I have seen this in Munnar & Nairobi too.

Bignoniaceae Week :: Pyrostegia venusta, Miers <=> Flaming trumpet – Bangalore – RA: Flaming trumpet is a vigorous, fast-growing, evergreen woody vine that blooms in winter and spring with spectacular reddish-orange flowers.  
The compound leaves have two or three 2-3 in oval leaflets and are arranged in pairs opposite each other on the stem. Often, the center leaflet is modified into a coiled, three-parted tendril. Flame vine branches profusely and climbs by clinging with its tendrils.
The tubular flowers are about 3 in long and borne in clusters of 15-20 at the tips of branches. The corolla has five lobes which are bent backwards, and the long orange stamens and style extend beyond the tube. The flower clusters may hang down under the weight of their own beauty.
Fruits are slender dry capsules about 1 ft long.  
Flaming trumpet is native to southern Brazil, northern Argentina and Paraguay.

From the photograph, it is very clear the Scarlet Sunbird’s curved beak cannot easily reach the nectaries of the the tubular flower. All they have to do is simply puncture at the base near the honey glands.
Thank you Sir for photographing and sharing such wonderful moments,

This one looks like the one in FoI or eFI.


It’s a beautiful picture!


Nice set of photographs. I think we also refer this climber asSankrant vel“, probably beacuse it is in full bloom around sankranti time in January…

Thanks, … Your knowledge about plants is superb. 

I am truly thankful to all of you. I have learnt many things about plants in the last few days. Flowersofindia.net has been great for me. Actually I am finding the names of these trees and plants because of my 4 year daughter who now knows name of quite a few wild plants and flowers.

GOLDEN SHOWER:  “Probably no plant in the world presents so gorgeous an appearance as Bignonia venusta (Golden Shower) when it is in full bloom during Jan-Feb” 
This certificate is taken from “SOME BEAUTIFUL INDIAN CLIMBERS AND SHRUBS”, by N L Bor and M B Raizada. I agree.  I first saw the plant in full bloom at Military Hospital at Dehradun. I have seen the plant at Pachmarhi, Tezpur and many places at North Bengal. I brought a sapling from Tezpur to Cooch Behar. It is in full bloom now.  
Sunbirds visit the plant for nectar. Attaching two images of the plant. In the second image male of a Yellow backed Sunbird is on the flower. You may be familiar with this type of scene. 

BIGNONIACEAE WEEK some species from Pantnagar: 1 correct image as above. 
Enclosing pics of:
3. Pyrostegia venusta, a very popular climber blooming in winters thus making good bee forage.

Seeing the fruits of this ornamental for the first time.

Nice to see the fruits of Pyrostegia venusta
Are there two climbers growing together?
I can see a small purple flower resembling Petrea, possibly Petrea volubilis


Yes … Petrea is also visible.

This is from my friend’s small garden. I myself did not believe but then he showed me the flowers. He was calling this as Bignonia venusta.
