    Can anyone name the pink flower used in garlands please....?

    Hello to all, I am trying to find a name for the flowers in the attached photo. When I was in India they were grown in many places and used in many garlands. I have found very few images of them in garlands on the internet but really would like to know the name so I can source seeds and grow them.

    In the photo, towards the right, the flowers are a very vivid deep pinky purple, with a papery texture that is dry on the growing plant and stays that way when plucked. They keep their colour when dried.

    I have looked through traditional Hindu flowers in literature and popular flowers in India plus garlands resources and I can’t pin down a name.

    Any help most appreciated. Thank you.

    The name of flower is Pink Rose. It is mostly used in garland of hindu marriages.

    For some reason I cannot see any photo/picture, but your description - papery dry texture, purplish pink, mangenta makes me think it is Boganvel

    Like this :

    Vel means vine. So Bogan Vel is always a vine who has these flowers, never a shrub or tree. It is very popular in India as a decorative/presentable vine covering house fences.

    However, Boganvel is never used in garlands!
    I cannot see any attachment to your post, and cannot be guessing. A kind of daisy is used in garlands.
