Crossandra Flowers Open Flat

At the Satok weekend flower market I notice these interesting crossandra species.  They are commonly in shades of yellow, but the samples above are in orange / salmon-pink, and a mixed white and light yellow variety. Notice how the petals and the flowers open up horizontally like the palm of the hand. Crossandras are a low perennial shrub( i.e. blooming throughout the year) and are  planted en masse in beds in landscaped areas around Kuching city.
