Requesting to please ID this ornamental flowers captured in Jijamata Udyan Flower Show, Mumbai in February 2014.
They look so much the flowers today in my earlier post. Are they also Lobularia maritima?


Iberis amara, the candy tuft

How could you miss it …, commonest ornamental in both warm and cold climates. Very easily differentiated from Lobularia maritima by it larger (at least twice as large) flowers, Zygomorphic (two large, two small) petals) and distinctly shallowly lobed broader leaves. Flowers always white in this species.
