Blooms of rain lily, hibiscus and night jasmine

Fall sowing is at peak right now. I am almost done with planting the bulbs except the hyacinths. Other spring flowering
annuals are sprouting as well. Only few flowers managed to continue their bloom in this month of november. The first is white
rain lily, zephyranthes candida.
 
The other flower in bloom is white ginger lily or butterfly ginger lily with botanic name Hedychium coronarium

Another plant which blooms in october and november with heavenly fragrance is  sad tree or night jasmine with botanic
name Nyctanthes arbortristis. Its flowers drop at night.

Here is the closer shot:

And last but not least this purple single flowered hibiscus.

I love the white flowers. We had the second one which my sister calls 'Camia' but it is quite delicate and died upon meeting my dogs!

This is the first time I saw a purple hibiscus!

Nice shots!

I love rain lily, especially when its naturalized in the grass. My butterfly gingers never fully flowered this year because it was too dry... :(

I wonder why it's called sad tree as it has a gorgeous bloom?

My Flower post. Have a great week ahead!

I love the rain lily! It has such a wonderful shape, and raindrops just make it perfect!
And the purple hibiscus is startling! I have never seen one like that!

I love jasmines, but these were slightly different from the ones we commonly have here,

Wow, your photos are lovely. But that hibiscus is unique to me coz i haven't seen it here, it looks like H.syriacus with additional unusual petals at the center.
