    Jayashree the first one reminds me of the Garlic vine but not sure second one reminds me of Ixora coccinea Jungle Geranium native to your country

    Never heard of garlic vine,may well be that but the second is not Ixora. This looks very different except that the flowers are in na cluster. Thankyou Luis.

    The first one looks like a jasmine/ mandevilla variety of some sort. A larger photo (meaning showing more of the vine) would be helpful.

    @Jayashree Rajan any other information regarding scent, how they vine/climb, etc. will help to identify them. Are the leaves of the second vine rough by any chance?

    This looks the second one. X Ruttyruspolia ‘Phyllis van Heerden’ (scroll down) It says it is a large shrub, though. Hhhmmm. http://www.fairchildgarden.org/livingcollections/plantsaleinformationpages/2011-Members-Day-Plant-Sale/

    The first one looks like mandevilla to me. I have had many of them over the years ( including a darker pink one in bloom on my deck right now) and that is how they bud. I am not familiar with the second one but it is lovely.

    Mandevilla for the first one and one of the many claradendroms for the second

    I already said the first is a mandevilla. More photos would help. I wish @Jayashree Rajan would look at the link I posted for the second.

    Donna,Think you've nailed it! The flowers look exactly the same except that this is a vine. So,maybe like many other plants,it has a vine variety too! Thankyou for identifying 'Phyllis'! :)

    Looks like an allamanda. I have a pink one.

    The first one is definitely mandevilla, I have one just like it

  • Donna Gill

    Awesome @Jayashree! If we can identify the mandevilla variety in the first photo, we can give her a name, too, but I need more photos to do that.
