I think it is Eranthemum purpurascens from Acanthaceae family

This is not Eranthemum pulchellum (syn: E. nervosum) commonly grown in Delhi. That species has white bracts with green veins, cuspidate at tip and spike not more than 7.5 cm long.

This is Eranthemum purpurascens Nees with green bracts, many nerved and ciliate along margin
Please see the key jointly developed by … and me. efi thread

I was thinking, why not Eranthemum roseum?


in both E. roseum and E. pulchellum the bracts are white with green veins not in this case

This shrub photographed from near Dakpathar looks like Eranthemum purpurascens, but does not match with one uploaded by …, as my plant is not as hairy and slightly mottled with faint patches. Please help in ID. Here is the photograph in Srikant ji’s key.


I do not see any problem. Can’t say about … photo.
