Lobelia leschenaultiana (C.Presl) Skottsb.(= Lobelia excelsa Lesch. ex Roxb.),
Wild shrub from tea estate area, Nilgiri, Tamilnadu around 2000m altitude.
Seems quite robust and large plant. Lobelias in the Himalaya are smaller species but closer to Tropics these becomes larger becoming almost tree like in Tropical alpines.
New to me; thanks for showing.
