Firecracker flower

Botanical name of this flower is crossandra infundibuliformis. I have bought this plant 2 weeks back. Actually I’m very fond of Rose plants, but somehow I ended buying this.

This flower is most famous is south India. This actually originates in Sri Lanka, South Africa and south India. This flower doesn’t have any aroma, but I like the garland made with this flower and jasmine flower
