A strange looking flower... Kalatope id Al041412:  A strange looking flower from the Chamera Dam side...
Location Kalatope, Chamba
Altitude 1200 mts
Habit herb
Habitat wild
Height 24-30 inches
Season April

This one is for sure Roylea cineraria....Lamiaceae, a plant much disccused earlier.
Here are the links to older threads

These are fruits with persisting calyx.
Persisting calyx either provide protection to the fruit at the young stage or if it still persist while dispersal it facilitates wind dispersal.
Here I think it is a wind dispersed fruit.

A cultivated, potted plant, could be a medicinal plant, at the Maharashtra Nature Park.
It might be Orthosiphon stamineus, (Cat's whiskers) Lamiaceae
Can it be Roylea elegans, a medicinal plant I had seen at the Flower Show in Jijamata Udyan?
The leaves look similar.
Yes it looks Roylea cinerea (Lamiaceae).
Thanks a lot for confirming the id.
