Brahma Kamal blooms in Bangalore
The flower blooms once in a year which makes it auspicious. It is mistaken as ‘Brahma Kamal’ (Saussurea obvallata ) which blooms in upper reaches of Himalayas.
I also wanted to post the picture of the the flower when it is in withering stage as above. It is this time that I noticed one very important thing. The flower comes out of the LEAF of the plant and not from stem like other flowers. I think this is unique.Also my friend showed how he is growing a fresh one in a pot by placing the leaf of the plant and not the stem like other flower plants. One continues to learn.
I have put the original “Brahma Kamal” photo also below
