( I took a picture of this flower, from my sister-in-law's garden. How is it?)
This flower is also Called "Nithya Kalyani"
I was actually reminded of this flower when I saw JKM's bluebell entry but could not get the name so I did not mention it there...
Thanks Jaya ma'am, and Lata.
Beautiful Periwinkle flower Indra. (Botanical name; Vinca rosea).
Yes Jayaji, I've also read that this is a medicinal flower, with anticancer properties, and is a powerful tranquilizer.
During my childhood I've heard people calling this 'sudukattu poo' ie., graveyard flower and people do not use this flower for pooja or other purposes. Now I learnt that it has a lot of medicinal value.
