Read the blog, Rahul. Interesting...a weed here that villagers ignore (or maybe smoke ;) and a nursery plant there! Thanks. I wish I ahd come a little earlier in the season and caught it in full bloom.

Thank you, Archer 07. We toured Madhya Pradesh, India for 9 days but I saw this plant only in one place...where it lined the road like a weed.

This is a very interesting plant / flower. I have never seen one of these in California.
