Me too, @rachelbrooks ! The crimped edges remind me of delicate sugar flowers made using a mould.

I have found the Latin name Vallaris glabra but unfortunately it isn't available any where in UK 🙁

This lovely woody #climber is native to #India and #Burma . A study of the flavour molecule, 2-acetyl-1-pyrroline (found in basmati rice/ jasmine), noted that this flavour molecule is synthesised in abundance in the basmati plant, as it is in these bread flowers and pandan leaves. The fragrance of this flower is likened to that of pandan leaves.. these flowers attract #butterflies and #hummingbirds • #newongt #breadflower #vallaris
