This one grew all on its own one summer and produced beautiful purple flowers and came back every year, I have this growing in my container for the last 4 years. I have looked through many websites related to plants and flowers info. but have not been able to find it! Can anyone identify this?

    Though I find the flower similar I think the one in the website has narrow leaves. :dry:

    Thanks for the link Asha, but I had looked at it too. Only the color of flowers is same, it is not the same one though!

    Can you be a little more specific about the height of the plant and size of the leaves etc. Did you get the plant in India or brought the seeds from some where else?

    If you can post some more pictures, that can be more informative to us. Like the stem of the plant is not visible here.

    Kalyani,
    I once had a similar plant at home. It looks exactly the same, both leaves and flowers. Most surprising fact is that both its leaves and flowers have the sweet aroma of well-ripened pine apple. I have seen the same plant at my daughter's school garden also.
    If it is so, then I can ask that nursery to give you the name of the plant. At present, I don't know its name.
    First, let us check if both the plants are same. :P

    I think that this is a matter of expertise. some botanist- like Dharmendra in Chupke Cupke - may give correct reply

    Kalyani, ever since you posted this thread I have been trying to respond and then left a message in your inbox and for the moderator to see what was wrong here...This is a wild flower , am not sure what the name is.It grows in my garden too, suddenly comes up - I guess it is seasonal because it disappears for a while and then grows again.I have a feeling it has tubers and thats how it is able to grow back again.When it is filled filled with flowers it looks very pretty...Just now it is not growing since it is monsoon, it comes after the rains sometime in January...will post a picture then ..
    The plant and flower in your pot looks very healthy ! :)

    Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back, it simply means that you are two steps ahead !!!
