Came across this flower in the forest cover of “Sohra-Cherapunjee“. Any clue on its ID..
… colour and texture of Strobilanthes … sheer thought.
Beautiful pix, DSC0096, … Looks rather like Ruellia, but the spiral structure dissuades me.
How many more such aces you have up your sleeve?! 😉 This one is not going to be easy. How about asking JRI Wood?
This flower has been identified as Strobilanthes sabiniana, a rare Himalayan flower, by JRI Wood, who is a researcher and an authority on Strobilanthes species.
… rarer the flower, greater the joy.
