Beautiful flower, and well shot! This should be a species of
Impatiens. A side pose would have shown a "spur" at the back.

It could be Impatiens sulcata, not very sure though.

Garg-ji,
I checked the flower on the site below and find the two flowers very different - not only in colour but also its look. But then I am not an expert at all to be able to say whether that constitutes a different family or sub-species.
A confirmation that my photo is indeed Impatiens sulcata would therefore be very much appreciated.
Thank you.
Sushmita Jha

I found this beautiful plant in somebody's garden in Shantiniketan.
Can you very kindly help identify it ?

Thanks - Purnima
