ID please … (family: ¿ Acanthaceae?)
Dear friends,
I have no idea of these buds; they are about 4 – 5 cm long. Will be glad to know ID to genus level, if photos provide any clues.


Pl. try comparative images at Acanthaceae


Thanks …, I think the flowers of posted plant are comparatively much larger than those of Dyschoriste.

Let us hope to get clue from who have seen this kind of sight often. I will be glad to get just genus ID.


Those are fruit pods (covered by persistent calyx) of Barleria involucrata var. elata. You have already captured the beautiful flowers!
