show allvery nice, ... seeds are a good vegetarian source of omega 3 fats
good for health and ground up seed also gives proper roughage to diet
is this planted or is it a volunteer?
I found this in Kamarkundu Railway Garden. There was only one plant. It seems to me that they took it for ornamental, as i did too.
These flowers are really beautiful. Why not plant them as ornamental I wonder!
Yes, ..., they are really beautiful.
