This was a full hedge.

  1. Lovely photos! Soon the snow will melt and we'll have some blossoms of our own. I think some of the plants are (from bottom to top): Duranta repens, Vinca minor (does indeed look like an impatiens), Thunbergia grandiflora, Urechites lutea, Stapelia sp., Mirabilis sp., Alpinia purpurata, Euphorbia milii. Not sure what the top one is

  2. Hello,
    the first flower is called "Ixora coccinea" belongs to the Rubiaceae family.
    Ixora can be found in many tropical countries including Mexico.
    I have created a blog for my tropical flower pictures.
    Please feel to browse!!
