Wild flowers in Pulau Ubin

Pulau Ubin boasts of a rich diversity of flora and fauna. While hiking on the island yesterday, I spotted some flowers growing in the wild.
Blue pea flower.

Flower of the winged bean legume.

Wild ginger flower.

A common wild flower called Melastoma malabathricum, sometimes refered to the Singapore rhododendron.

I wonder if this yellow flower is related to the one above.

Strangely this red flower is also found on the same plant that produces the yellow flower (above). I suspect it transforms into yellow flower at a later stage.


  1. perculiar indeed, yellow get transformed to red...

  2. Fascinating flowers! Amazingly some of them are similar to the blooms I saw at Gasing Hill during our recent hike.
