Flowers from Mizoram

In Mizo language flower is known as 'pangpar'. Few years back a friend and blogger Jerusha  enlightened us with Mizo pangpar (flower), she did a good job in her blog with a title 'Mizo pangpar te leh an Sap hming'. She illustrated names of flower in Mizo and English, also included their Scientific names. It was actually useful and informative, one must see that page if they really interested in Mizoram's flowers. By owing high reference to  the descriptions already given by Jerusha i am adding some more flowers in this page which i had collected from our home state i.e. Mizoram. Some flowers are clicked by my brothers Thlenga Ralte & Amuana Ralte, i owe much credits to them too.  On the following pictures i just put question mark (?) on the captions, that means i do not know it name(s) in either in Mizo or in English, if you know it kindly correct me in comment sections.

Wow! I was searching for Mizoram flowers on the net and stumbled here. Good, informative. I'm still looking for Dingdi and Ainawn, since i don't know their English names.
