I could capture some of the lovely wild flowers when I visited some places in the mountainous regions of the Western Ghats last weekend. The Gloriosa superba lily is the queen of the tropical wild flowers. It is called Agnishikha, fire flower- locally. Its tuber is used in Ayurveda medicine.
The intense blue of the Snake weed makes the flowers stand out in the undergrowth of the jungle clearing. The plant is used to treat snake bites. It resembles the Porterweed which is a familiar sight in the plains.
Beautiful white flowers of the Wild Tobacco Lobelia nicoteanefolia were dotting the jungle landscape . This is also a poisonous plant. The leaves are used for the treatment of asthma and bronchitis.
I could not find the names of these two wild flowers.
This is my contribution to Flowers for Today. You can see beautiful flowers from the far corners of the world here.
