Jamaica - Beautiful Flowers

Although things like food were subpar at our resort, there were a few things that were wonderful on our trip. Below I would love to share all of the beautiful flowers we were surrounded by:

~ wondrous variety of Hibiscus flowers:

~ bushes upon bushes of Alpinia purpurata (often known as Red Ginger or Ginger Lily, though these species were pink)
Pink Ginger Lily (Alpinia purpurata)

~ large bushes of beautiful clusters of Lantana (these are from the Verbena family of flowers)

~ all along the paths we walked by lovely bright colours of the Bougainvillea, including pink, magenta, purple, red, and white (apparently, these come in orange and yellow too!)

~ Jamaican Wild Orchid

~ flower from the Allamanda variety

~ red layered Hibiscus

~ one of the many varieties of Begonia (this one I found at the Bob Marley Mausoleum!)

~ finally, captivating Ixora flowers

~ the flowers below are also beautiful, and I have found similar flower images online, but I just couldn't figure out their names... are you able to help?
(some images are "fuzzy" because of a nice Jamaican breeze!)
