Scutellaria barbata
is a species of flowering plant in the mint family, Lamiaceae. It is native to Asia.[1] Its English common name is barbed skullcap.[2]
It is a perennial herb generally reaching up to 35 centimeters tall, sometimes taller. The lightly toothed leaves are somewhat lance-shaped or triangular and up to about 3 centimeters long. The flowers are borne on pedicels that have tiny, sharp bracteoles. The purple-blue, lightly hairy flower corolla is roughly a centimeter long. The plant grows in moist and wet habitat, such as paddy fields.[1]
As an herb used in traditional Chinese medicine it is known as Ban Zhi Lian (Chinese: 半枝莲; pinyin: bànzhīlián). It has been tested in clinical trials for the treatment of metastatic breast cancer.[3] Extracts induced apoptosis in prostate cancer cells in laboratory studies.[4] The plant is used as an herbal remedy for inflammation and traumatic injury.[1]

Outskirts of Kathmandy valley !

Strobilanthes ??
Neither Strobilanthes nor Acanthaceae. It appears to have spurred flowers. Could it be Impatiens?- as per another thread by Dr. Wood.

Scutellaria barbata D.Don ??
Yes, appears close to images at Scutellaria barbata
