Asystasia indica H. J. Chowdhery & Av. Bhattacharijee
Yes, A. Indica… The ganges primrose…
its flourishing in meadows, along road sides, in grassy areas where grass/lawn in not mowed regularly,
Right now its very prolific in the SHuibpur botanical Garden… since March I have sighted and photographed… yellow, this white and magenta stripes, white with diffuse magenta petals (as if the color was air sprayed on in parts!!!) and and a pinkish variety…
slowly am getting organized, will put up the pictures…
PS: I AM A STRONG PROPONENT OF NOT MOWING THE LAWN TOO OFTEN, JUST TO LET THE LOCAL FLORA FLOURISH AND GET A TOE HOLD… DO YOU FEEL THAT WAY?
Yes its Asystasia indica
Yes …, I feel that way too, and my lawn is not the so called “english lawn“. I have watched people with a poisonspray in hand killing each and everything, which “does not belong there”.
We say in German “Jedem das seine”, one does in his / her own way.
is it anyhow toxic in nature ???
