Herb For id from Dehradun-Mussoorie Road: This herb was shot from Dehradun-Mussoorie road in September 2010 and for me this can be any Commelinaceae member. I know and regret for bad quality pics, but still hope to find id as the flower colour looks quite unusual to me.
It was raining badly that day, I could not get any better pics of this. I hope I can get clue up to Genus level, if not species. 


… thank you for sharing such a beautiful Tricarpelema J. K. Morton and your guess is right, this is Commelinaceae member.

Exactly could not say the species, because this genus having great diversity in NE India,.
Total 8 species, only 1 species was found in Africa while remaining 8 are distributed through NE India to the Philippines and Borneo.


I am taking my words back … and all……….

This could be Tinantia erecta . Family- Commelinaceae


This looks like Tinantia erecta, a genus new to me…thanks for your efforts..
