Commonly found in south Florida but I have yet to see seeds on it here. I saw these flowers in Sikkim and West Bengal state of India where the flowers are much larger and colors more vibrant with numerous seeds on bushes. Must be due to difference in soil.It rains a lot there and these are tea growing parts of country. Women use flower cluster to adorn their hair just like you would use a rose
