amituidacanthaceae662011: Sending photo of an ornamental in office garden. Is it some species of Acanthus. Please help in identification.


Looks like Beloperone guttata but also looks like JUSTICIA BRANDEGEANA are they synonymous or is there any difference


Yes .., you are correct on both counts. Beloperone  is synonym of Justicia Brandegeana, which was uploaded today separately today by .. from India and me from California
This plant seems to be the cultivar of Justicia Brandegeana known as ‘Yellow Queen’, common name Yellow Shrimp plant

Plant for ID : Ornamental. 24/11/2011 SMP2: Observed in Pune. Planted in a private Hotel near the wall.
Around 4-5 feet tall flower size similar to Adhatoda.
Acanthaceae species?


May be Pachystachys lutea or its cultivar


…It looks like Justicia brandegeana (Shirmp Plant) rather than Pachystachys lutea (Golden Shrimp plant). The flowers here, have some red shade in them and also d projecting white flowers have distinctive marking ( which r absent in Golden shirmp plant).


Yes … you are right. I also had this doubt because this plant came up during Acanthaceae week, but some how forgot this name. Thanks for reminding.


Yes this is not Pachystachys. I remember when I was in school but still interested in plants, and I used to collect plants for my garden. I went to our nursery and asked him the name of the plant, He said CHESIS PACHIS…. It took me years to understand what he meant!!! 🙂

Attached are pictures of Justicia brandegeeana var. lutea captured in a cultivated garden in Mumbai in November 2012.

Requested to validate the ID.


Yes for the ID, but do we need to go for cultivar name? Though similar images in toptropicals or a few other sites have been labelled as such particular cultivar, we do not know if our climate would suit those particular cultivars. Better have a look at –
A common ornamental, pics recorded from Panipat..

Justicia Species seen in Bangalore.

A cultivated, garden plant.

Seems to be Justicia brandegeana.


Seems to be Pachystachys lutea ‘red’ cultivar as per first link.

last link has names confusing me, but one image is similar to yours.
I think you match leaves to conclude species. Whether Pachystachys lutea or Justicia brandegeana.

It should be Justicia brandegeeana rather than Pachystachys lutea as per images and details herein and as per the difference between the two at

Justicia brandegeana ‘lutea’;

Golden Shrimp Plant;
