Red frangipani flowers

While shopping at Gambier Street in down town Kuching, I stopped by the jetty to watch the serenity of the Sarawak River and the rustic and historical 'Astana' on the opposite riverbank. The Astana is the official residence of the Governor of Sarawak now. I was taken aback by the blood red colours of the above frangipani species planted in planter boxes in front of the shophouses area. I have often seen pink or a mixture of pink and orange colours but pure red colours are hard to come by.
