Flower from Sohra- Cherapunjee: Attachments (2). 8 posts by 6 authors.
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.
