Is this commonly known as Blue Barleria as in FOI?
Experts kindly validate.
I think the following two species are quite close:
Barleria strigosa
 
I think this is Barleria strigosa. Please validate!
According to BSI Fl of Maharashtra:
Barleria strigosa: Entire plants less strigosely hairy, inflorescence axillary, occasionally terminal, often glomerate, always secund (means directed towards one side)
Barleria terminalis: Entire plants densely strigosely hairy, inflorescence terminal, occasionally axillary, dense short spikes.
If we look at the illustration in the same book we see the shape of the bracts differ. Those of B. strigosa are broader with ciliate margins, those of B. terminalis are more lanceolate.
Distributions given for B. terminalis are: Along the western ghats. Frequent. Kolhapur, Pune, Raigad, Ratnagiri, Satara, Sindhudurg. For B. strigosa: In Deccan and to eastwards. Frequent. Chandrapur
In eflora we see several plants correctly identified, for example:
and a few incorrectly identified.
I have a feeling the B. terminalis in FOI may not be correct, but the image doesn't show a full picture of the bracts. If we go only on the flowers then it's very difficult to differentiate.
Looking forward to your comments regarding these 2 species.

This are wonderful photos to identify B. strigosa from terminalis.
Thanks Radha very much for sharing these.
yes
i have exactly this plant pic from a herb garden curated by Prof D C Pal.
in bangla its called neel jhanti.
Its leaves and roots are used for coughs and inflammations.
This might explain why it was seen growing in a pot in the nursery at Rani bagh.

Is this a wild flower or a garden flower? Would like Common, Botanical
& Family ID. Pic taken in Lalbagh Botanical Garden, Bangalore on 13/11/11 around 8.45am. There was only this one plant [ shrub ]- & it was not part of the landscaping.

looking at those elliptic lancelike leaves may be ?Barleria terminalis Nili koranti in Marathi
Yes ..., the posted Barleria does look like B. terminalis
Useful reference for all of us:
Rheedea article [PDF] ... Revision of the Genus Barleria (Acanthaceae) in India by Shankar M. Shendage and S.R. Yadav
Pl. validate it as Barleria terminalis or otherwise in view of another thread.
