Team's reply: Riddhima, Gulbakshi is Four O'clock, Madhumalati is Rangoon Creeper, Kanher is Oleander, Bogan wel is Bougainvillea, Tagar is Crape Jasmine, and probably you are looking for Ixora and Carnation. You can get information by clicking on these links.
This is very very good site for any type of information about indian flowers, to study or any best wishes for this site......sanjay savalia

Also, thanks to 'Flowers Of India' for including my photograph of 'Crossandra' or 'Kanakambaram' in the 'Stroll through the garden' section.

Hi! I love your site. It is so informative. I've been planning to prepare a coffeetable book on Indian flowers, especially those that are used in pooja. You site contains some flowers that are not available in Malaysia. I shall be most happy to know your terms for use of your photographs. I would of-course require high density photographs. TQ

Team's reply: Sorry, the photographs on the site are not for sale. They are there for people to see and enjoy on the Web.
Great effort! Nice to see that there exists a website which lists all our native flora and fauna on the net. Otherwise all the websites on plants are US bases or other western countries in orgin which is quite frustrating when it comes to information on temp, climatic conditions or growth or for that matter identifying a plant even! Keep it up and please mantain it.

This is a very informative site, and helped me find out the names of a lot of flowers that grew in the garden and I didn't even know their names!! And cleared upa few misconceptions, like I thought the name of Rangoon creeper was Vaijanthi.

Stunning presentation,the classification's even better..its perhaps the most ergonomic & relevant portal in terms of content to the Indian context...i specially liked u'r section on flowering trees...even my local nursery guy has tranformed his workstation with u'r site as his HOMEPAGE...Keep up the gud work..i'd like to mail you a few pictures of sum rare flowering trees & shrubs...u'd b spot on at identifying them um sure.

Is Bela (Arabian Jasmine)commonly found in the wild in the Himalayan foothills or is it easier to procure it from nurseries?
Kiran Srivastava
Mumbai, India - Wednesday, September 05, 2007 at 17:04:44 (IST)
Team's reply: Kiran, we don't think Bela is found in the wild. It is an extremely common pot plant in north-India, easily available from nurseries.
This site is awesome. It provides useful knowledge for any new comer to this amazing world of flowers. Keep up the good work.

Team's reply: Varsha, we do have Brahma Kamal (Saussurea obvallata), which is a high-altitude Himalayan flower. However, since you are from Mahrashtra, you might be looking for Orchid Cactus (Epiphyllum oxypetalum), called Brahmkamal in Marathi.

Simply sterling stuff! Kudos to you all for this much needed and brilliant site..I am passionate about Himalayan wild flowers and have been documenting some since the past few years. I really like the little travelogue on the Valley of Flowers, and I must inform to all who do not know that there are a plethora of similiar valleys all across Himachal Pradesh too, between an elevation of 3200 to 4000 metres. I too have found a spectacular valley of flowers near the source of the Pabbar river in south-eastern Himachal, above the Rohru valley. Come and see it to believe it. Would love to contribute to this site.

Appreciate your efforts for maintaining such an enormous information on Indian flowers. I was trying to name the dried flowers that my son collected for a project at school, and found all the names in your web site. Thank you.

I want beautiful plants and flowers for indoor planting, those not needing sunlight. Can you suggest what I can buy and where in Bangalore?
Bangalore, Karnataka India - Wednesday, August 01, 2007 at 06:41:43 (IST)

Hello Sir/Ma'am
this is an amazing website. Simply marvellous. I am very glad you came up with the concept. I found your website through google search engine & i am just very happy to have visited it.
I live in wisconsin, USA & have been looking up for names of plants from India & when i looked at this website, it was divine. I come from Chennai & hope to return in another 5 yrs.
My most favorite feature is that you give regional names , so i can identify the plant easily.
Here , in the USA, nursery owners don't know much about the local names, now after visiting your website , i can get the botanical name & look it up.
Thank you so much for putting up this site. it is so useful to me.
I appreciate all your hardwork & effots to make this website happen.
Thanks again.

Oshkosh, WI USA - Tuesday, July 31, 2007 at 20:11:43 (IST)

Vidya Joshi
Pune, MH India - Tuesday, July 31, 2007 at 19:22:56 (IST)
Team's reply: Dinesh Valke, our 'Tree Man' from Maharashtra says, Booch, would make sense as बुच ( proper Marathi word is बुचू buchoo) meaning a stopple or plug; a bung, cork. Commonly known as Indian Cork tree, Marathi: बुचाड़े झाड़ buchade jhad, कावल निम्ब kaval neem Hindi: आकाश निम्ब akash neem.

i am searching the flower name 'gurhal' in india and its inglish name

Wonderful site. I discovered it by chance and now I am hooked. Can you suggest which fragrant flowers can I plant in this climate?
Patna, Bihar India - Wednesday, July 25, 2007 at 13:44:26 (IST)
Team's reply: Pragati, lots of fragrant plants tolerate the heat of places like Patna. You can use Bela, Mogra and Juhi as potted plants. Or you can have an interesting vine called Malati, which will give you beautiful, fragrant flowers.

I was searching for adenium in delhi.
meerut, u.p India - Saturday, July 21, 2007 at 08:32:19 (IST)

Priya A
Hauppauge, NY USA - Wednesday, July 18, 2007 at 01:29:22 (IST)

Now i would be more happy to keep in touch with you for various queries of mine if you can entertain it.
I have a suggestion too why not start telling us on your site how to grow various flowering plants, vines and shrubs in our home garden.
I would like to know if you would be able to tell me where certain plants would be available when asked for.
Its my hobby of collecting intresting and colourfull plants.
I hope you will be able to help me out.
I shall start with my quieries to you shortly.
I wish you good luck in what ever you do.

What a delightful and informative site... obviously a labour of love....
I have a query... I once had a creeper planted in our balcony which used to yield beautiful lavernder, bluish flowers, with a whitish centre, the petals were thread like and the tendrils of the plant were very very delicate. It had a unique soft lingering kind of fragrance. I remember my father calling it krishna kamal... however, I draw a blank at most nurseries!!! Can you help me find the flower I am looking for?

Mumbai, India - Monday, July 02, 2007 at 14:15:52 (IST)
Team's reply: Atula, could the flower you are looking for be the Blue Passion Flower (Passiflora caerulea)? If we take the "whitish center" too seriously, it could be Purple Passion Flower (Passiflora incarnata). However, this one is darker in color, and cannot be called lavendar. You can check out these two on the site and see if that is what you are looking for.

is our Indegenous ingredients enough to make nature so much beautiful like this..... I wondered while surfing this site. all by congrats to the makers. I would like to receive photographs to my if u could.
warm regards

This is a very helpful site. As your team is not yet started the online selling of plants or information of nurseries in over the cities. In the meanwhile can your arrange flower exhibition. That will be very helpful for us.

Team's reply: Gauri, we have put up a list of nurseries in some of the Indian cities, and hope it will grow. As of now, the only job we are capable of doing is, photographing flowers, identifying them, and putting them on the site. We do not have manpower to organise things like flower exhibitions. There are other people better equipped for that, and they do organise flower shows. However, we would definitely like to carry announcements regarding various flower events in India. But for that, people have to send us the details.

For so many years i searched in vain for a site dealing with flowers in the Indian context and had given up. Today looking for a plant nursery number i discovered your site and just wanted to say thankyou. I am a nature lover and am my own 'mali' but i was never totally sure of the names of the flowers i was growing..... but now i can check them here. Keep going...........

Its indeed a very good site for plant lovers.I have never done much gardening before but as I like natural plants more than artificial ones,I am planning to have a small garden.I had planted petunia but it dried away.Can you suggest how should I start?
Pune, Maharashtra India - Sunday, June 03, 2007 at 14:34:41 (IST)

Hi, the beautiful hybrid Mums, Petunia and Gazania have served me very well in the summer months. After almost 3 moths of planting the season has now changed. It has been raining in Bangalore and all the petunias have started dying. The Mum and Gazinia are also not flowering due to lack of sun.
Can you please suggest some flowers that i could plant in the monsoons and suitable for semi shaded gardens.
Will appreciate your suggestion as i am a novice in gardening, but love my garden to have lots of flowers all the time.

I find this is a great and very helpful site both for professionals and novices.

I would love to meet all the team members since I live in Delhi and the team is also based at Delhi.

I also want to thank all the team members who are doing a great job selflessly.

I am a photo-journalist by profession and write for a monthly publication of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs which is published in 12 languages for distribution in Indian embassies/missions abroad. Do please contact me if I can be of any help to the team.

Its a good site. It would be good if a list of nurserys in major cities in india are listed which would make it easy fr us to find for paricular flowers through thier phone numbers.
Mumbai, India - Monday, May 07, 2007 at 22:06:29 (IST)
Team's reply: Varsha, information regarding nurseries in Indian cities has been a demand from many of our visitors. A lots of nurseries are not IT-savvy, and many do not even know the botanical names of the plants they sell. Also, at present we are ill-equipped to collect this kind of information. However, we have set up a preliminary list of nurseries. Nursery owners can themselves add their profile on the page. We think that this procedure is the best under the present circumstances.

I love this site Please keep on the good work

99% of the times, I get to find the specimen !
Rest 1%, it is I who "miss finding" it !!

Keep up your fantastic endeavour - I bet this is the most exhaustive collection of flowers found in India.

Today i am a proud owner of the most beautiful floral garden in my area. Thank the whole team of for the amazing effort and information provided.
Can you please include a section in your website for flowers by season. This will give a bit more clarity on which are the best flowers to plant when the season is changing.

Bangalore, KA India - Wednesday, April 25, 2007 at 10:02:52 (IST)
Team's reply: Shefali, categorizing flowers by season is a nice idea. We will try to implement it.

I think the Tabebuia is hetraphyllia not impetignosa, at least the tree in the pic. The leaves of T. impetignosa are heart shaped and serrated, not oval. The flower colr is similar.

Hilo, Hi Hawaii - Wednesday, April 18, 2007 at 10:43:12 (IST)
Team's reply: You are right that it is not T. impetiginosa. We went and had a more detailed look at the leaves, and came to the conclusion that it is T. rosea. On the other hand, T. heterophylla has leathery leaves, which is not at all the case for our species.

Thanks for such an informative site keep up the good work. I would like to know where I can purchase some the plants that are not native to the US. THANKS BRENDA

India - Thursday, March 29, 2007 at 17:06:17 (IST)
Team's reply: Thanks Europa for the names. Ghanti ful agrees with the english name. To our knowledge, "Kanher" is the name used for Oleander, Nerium indicum (kaner in Hindi). So, are you sure that this name is also used for Rhododendron?

Name of Yellow Bells in Marathi is : "Ghanti Full" and the seeds are called "Bitya"

Some 4 years ago i just wanted to find out what a magnolia flower was called in hindi and it seemed like so hard to get any info about the names of flowers in our languages .
It was like this if i searched on the web it was in english, if i asked some one they would answer it if they could in a local language and hence could never corelate
This is a wonderful effort.
I would suggest you also add the name of flowers in the information in various major indian languages as and when you get the info.
