When this blooms in India, we (Hindus) bring the pot indoors and worship the flower 🌺 seeing it in bloom is considered good luck...

Unfortunately this is in ground up a Gum tree, usually go out at night to view in flower. Thank you for the comment @Pushkraj

I'd sort of guessed, because it doesn't flower as profusely in a pot 😊

Only this afternoon on my walk observed a number of these plants that obviously flowered recently too. All easily accessible to get a cutting.

I have had only one bloom, I missed it! Mine is indoors so I have to keep cutting it back, it gets so big! One of my favorite plants!

I wish I was @Qing just luck of the shot, but usually these shots have been taken at night and using a torch to illuminate the flower. Thank you for the compliment too 👏
