Lollipop Flower (Pachystachys Lutea)

We used to call it bunga lilin (candle flower). I share for Today's Flowers a bunch of lollipop flowers that I found inside Bogor Botanical Gardens. I read that the leaves can be used to cure diarrhea.

In Malaysia, this flower is also know as Sepit Udang (shrimp pincers). I heard that Bogor Botanic Garden is a very beautiful place.
