The Peacock Flower is often used in urban landscaping in Singapore and is a favourite amongst landscape architects looking to add colour to their palette of greenery and lush plants. Its flower is only moderately attractive to butterflies, particularly the larger species. This may be due to the shape and design of the flower, which require longer proboscis of the larger butterflies to reach into the flower for nectar.
