This morning glory type flower is found growing in fields in Indo-Nepal border region and Nepal. Found blooming on November.
Would it be possible to get seeds of the plant? It is beautiful and could well be introduced into our gardens.
This seems to be Reinwardtia trigyna of Linaceae
I think you are on the dot! Because of some confusion, I had been thinking of Reinwardtia trigyna as a synonym of Reinwardtia indica. In fact, first look at this yellow flower with reddish nectar-lines in the throat, reminded me of Reinwardtia indica. Thanks a million!
Sorry, I got mixed up again! Reinwardtia trigyna is a synonym of Reinwardtia indica
