Cakile arctica (Arctic Sea Rocket) | i assume it got its common name from its fruits (3rd pic)? when i first saw this interesting arctic beach dweller, i thought it was some sort of Kalanchoe. yet there’s something ‘brassica’ about its flowers. indeed, managed to narrow it down in Brassicaceae!

Actinodaphne malaccensis | been anticipating the leaves of this Actinodaphne to flush, since i spotted its swelling leaf buds back in mid August (last 2 pics). #actinodaphne #lauraceae #newleaf #leaves #newflush #forest #macritchie #trees #orangkensli #tree #leaf #treelovers #leafbuds #thankszakij #treesofmacritchie #arboriken

Gymnostoma | 14 formally described species, with the majority of 8 endemic to New Caledonia, 1 to Fiji, 1 to New Guinea, 1 to Australia (11 from Oceania region) and 3 from Malesia region.
the 3 more commonly cultivated Gymnostoma (nobile, sumatranum, rumphianum) in Singapore comes from Malesia region. the weeping rumphianum is easy to identify, but i’m still trying to tell apart nobile & sumatranum.
