The 3 Mussaenda Bush Plants In My Garden:
1. Doña Aurora Mussaenda
|This is the young planted Mussaenda bush plant which is commonly known as Doña Aurora in my home country Philippines. It is named after the wife of the 1st President of the Philippines. I bought this from the neighbor who was selling plants. It was planted in the small pot but I transferred it when it went bigger for the pot. I dug a deep hole in my garden which covered the whole roots and soil of the Mussaenda. I bought this beautiful white bracts flower in 2011.|
2. Doña Sirikit Mussaenda
3. Doña Cory Mussaenda
I have seen a lot of this plant on the way to Tinuy-an Falls in Surigao del Sur. I did not know those plants but since then, I kept on looking for a seedling or cutting of this unknown plant. Then I saw this in a flower shop in the city. I bought Doña Corry Mussaenda before I went back home to Germany last year. This is the only photo that I have but I will add a new one soon. As far as I know, this flower is called after the name of the former President Cory Aquino. Maybe because the color is yellowish to dark yellow.
