Crossandra infundibuliformis Flower/ Firecracker flower

The common name "firecracker flower" refers to the seed pods, which are found after the flower has dried up, and tend to "explode" when near high humidity or rainfall. The "explosion" releases the seeds onto the ground, thereby creating new seedlings. It is popularly known as Kanakambaram in Tamil , Malayalam and Telugu and Kanakambara in Kannada. In Maharashtra its known as Aboli. I captured this flower at my native place

  2. kLovely captures! Thanks for the info, this flower is called as Abballige in Dakshina Kannada (Coastal Karnataka), two names within a state :) Aboli and Abballige seem to be similar!
