A close-up of flowers of Bouvardia 'Royal Edith' [Family: Rubiaceae]. Bouvardia flowers are composed of slender tubes, topped by four petals in a cross-formation. Although all of the flowers have a bright-red band at the right-angle intersection of corolla-lobe to corolla-tube, the color of the lobe itself depends on the age of the bloom. When the flower first opens the lobes are bright-pink, but they soon fade to faint-pink, or even to white over a period of 24 hours.
