This wild flower grows only in that region of the Western Ghats. It is called Carnatic Curcuma, or Karnataka Turmeric. This flower was 'discovered' by the botanists only in 1990.It is white, with a yellow line down its lower lip.
This is a clerodendron,Clerodendrum paniculatum seen at the edge of the forest. The villagers in the periphery of the forest grow it as a hedge.
This pretty white flower, Great Fringed -flower Vine Trichosanthes tricuspidata, is an endangered species, belonging to the cucurbit family. It had oval shaped fruit. Grows on a vine.
Most of the wild flowers in the forest in this season were white or pale coloured.I think it is to reflect the maximum amount of light, because it is quite dark deep inside the forest. I have more pictures which I'll be posting soon.
