please check this photograph. i took this in munnar, kerala. if you know the name of this beautiful flower, please let me know

It has to be a cactus or succulent. my best guess is some sp. of euphorbia. However, it is a guess only.

I tried to look for Euphorbia species on the net & in the Tropical Garden plants by Bose, Chowdhury & Sharma, but couldn’t find this one. Further one can see the leaves in the picture, which is not there in the Euphorbia species. Do you have other pictures showing leaves etc.? If so, pl. post them.

Plz post a pictue of the flower with its leaves and habit if possible as it will make identification easier

Looks like lamiaceae. But it is a beautiful; shot

The plant looks like one of the wild Jacobinia sps, belonging to Acanthaceae family. I have seen most beautiful Jacobinias in USA ( J.carnea). But they are cultivated. Any how please check for the morphological descriptions of the plant and flowers to make sure of the sepcies.

I think it is a Jacobina – I dont know the botanical name

I think it matches with Justicia carnea (‘Rose’ Jacobinia)
as per the links & details:,
Here is the Wilkepedia link. … has to confirm whether it is the same flower.

Jacobinia is the genus name (part of the species name/ botanical name). Many times the botanical name and comma names are the same.
