  1. Hello , I’ve searched for you and found out that the yellow plant with thorns and the red stripe on the leafs is the Baleria lupulina. It’s a medical plant. https://www.google.nl/search?q=Barleria+lupulina&rls=com.microsoft:nl:%7Breferrer:source?%7D&rlz=1I7ADBF_nl&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=9TrvU5WTJ4WxOdKHgYgP&ved=0CC8Q7Ak&biw=1227&bih=520

    From now on I will follow your blog. It’s lovely! My name is Paula Scholtz-Ligthart and I live in the Netherlands.

    1. Hi Paula, Thanks for following.

      You are exactly right about the yellow-flowering plant being Baleria lupulina — Thank you! It looks like it’s being studied as a muscle relaxant. Hortipedia says it’s also called hophead Philippine violet and is in the family of the Acanthaceae.

      I’m going to try to update my plant list page this week.
