Please help to identify this monocot plant with white flowers from a garden in Trivandrum.
Photographed today (25.6.13)
Looks somewhat like Iris flower??
Any Hypoxis sp.?
This is Eleuthrine plicata of Iridaceae, commonly known in Malayalam as Vishanarayani
Thanks ... for the correct ID.
Beautiful. I had this plant in my garden at home. I remember identifying it as Eleutherine plicata.
By the way, ..., I never seen a white Hypoxis. Strange, why all Hypoxis and Curculigo are yellow !!
