High time for Dillenia excelsa blooms

It's high time for Dillenia excelsa at FRIM in blooms now. It is really an amazing view to witness espeially in the morning as the flowers are still fresh and the bright yellow petals are still intact. The contrast colour of the stamens which are purplish highlighted the flower even more. There are 2 types of stamen that can be witnessed on the flower, the inner stamens which are introse at the tip while the outer stamens are shorter and spreading. Note that all the flowers of 'simpoh ungu' are facing the upwards position.
