Cyanotis !


It is very close to Cyanotis burmanniana 


I think Cyanotis cristata (L.) D.Don as per images and details herein.
Looks different from images at Cyanotis burmanniana Wight


Please check the collage, dear …

First is C. cristata as per efi
Second is C. burmanniana in Efi
Third is the said, mine, very close to C.burmanniana and only difference is hairless,


I am sure, it is not C. cristata. Flower of C. cristata closed around morning 10.00 am and flower of said plant closed around 01.00pm.  Never visible weak stamen hairs and clear pink petals in C. cristata like 4th image in the second post and 1st image in the 3rd post.


I hope Mayur ji further clarifies your doubts.



I am not sure it is Cyanotis burmanniana, and it is only my suggestion. But I am sure, it is not Cynotis cristata, I trying for seed images of both plants, sharing unripened seed image of the said plant,
2 images.



Please check the below comparison on C. cristata & ID 140 with collage images.
C. cristata.                                   ID 140
                           Appearance:

The first (left) is of C. cristata and 2nd (right) is of ID140 in all collages.
As per these differences, I am strictly denied it is C. cristata,
6 images.


In the collage #20211023_115502, C.cristata is in the right side,


I think Cyanotis cristata (L.) D.Don only as per images and details herein.
It is quite variable.
… may pl. further confirm.
