Hi,

Found this plant growing really nicely at a higher elevation place here.

Wonder if it will grow well in lowland places as well.

Hope you can help me to identify this plant.

Thank you.

Stephanie

The leaves remind me of Impatiens. A close-up of the bloom, stem, etc would help.

I think it's an Acanthaceae. Could be Peristrophe speciosa?

Hi growin,

Sorry no close up pics. Attached is two pics. I hope the leaves would be clearer in these pics.

Thanks,
Stephanie

Hi Darwiniensis,

It does look like the Peristrophe speciosa from this link below :-D

I think the photo in DG PlantFiles may not be correct for Peristrophe speciosa

http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/148726/

I think the PF picture is actually Peristrophe japonica?

Hi themoonhowl,

The photo in DG PlantfFile you pointed out looks like Peristrophe roxburghiana as well.

And it seems to have three names...

Thanks Stephanie. That means that the pic for P speciosa in plant files is incorrect...it is a pic of P roxburghiana. Thanks for the confirmation.
