HI Ruby,this plant is a great beauty! I never seen before and the flowers and really a great spectacle.A very useful pic and a magnificent quality of sharpness,colors and light balance! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Nice picture, with great picture quality.
but this plant is not available or found wild in Bengal. we planted this plant in our garden as a ornamental plant.
