Rosy Eranthemums

Flower of the Day

Another wild flower predominantly found in the Western Ghats. Made its acquaintance during our recent trip to the Ghats.

Eranthemum roseum

It has a very strong medicinal smell.

I collected a bunch from the wild, which I was forced to discard after a while, as my folks couldn’t tolerate the strong smell.

It is locally called dashmuli. Das in hindi is 10. It grows to a height of 10 and hence the name.
