Indonesian Flower 4: A picture taken in Taman Topi (Hat Park) Bogor City Center.  It looks like Allamanda, ID is requested.


– this is not alamanda
this is Solandra longiflora
common name is Trumpet plant


– Hard to distinguish between Solandra longiflora and Solandra maxima.
However, if it is from Indonesia, it is more likely to be Solandra longiflora.

Solandra grandiflora  Sw.

Thanks, …, I researched on this subject on net.
Most of our observations so far in efi site are of Solandra maxima including those at FOI.
I could not find differences between the two on net.
However, I could only find these references from literature on net on both these species:

Floriculture in India By Gurcharan Singh Randhawa, Amitabha Mukhopadhyay (1986)- Details: Solandra grandiflora

Flora Indica; or Descriptions of Indian plants … Edited by W. Carey … To … By William Roxburgh (1874): Solandra grandiflora  

From Floral Database of Tamilnadu :

Binomial Habit Notes References Distribution

Solandra grandiflora Sw. Shrub Western Ghats, Evergreen Forests,  Cultivated, Native of Tropical America Flora of Tamil Nadu, VOL. II, 1987 Nilgiri 

In view, I feel that we should go Solandra grandiflora Sw. for all our posts, until some other recent literature proves that our plant stated earlier was misidentified in above mentioned literatures.
Request feedback from others to sort out this matter.


A comparison between the two species is here in the attached paper, if somebody wants to sort it out. Attachments (1)- Solandra-bernardello1987.pdf- 1 MB.

This would be Solandra grandiflora as per the discussions on Eflora?
Can you kindly confirm?


Yes !
