Common name: Indian Snakeweed, Blue snakeweed, Nettle-leaved vervain
Strange that a plant, by name Indian Snakeweed, is not only cultivated in a pot, and also being sold at the horticulture exhibition – this one was for Rs 50/-.
But the stalkless flowers that grow on a spike are pretty. I saw a couple of them being bought. Of course the name of the plant was not displayed.
This plant is known to attract butterflies because of its sweet nectar.
