I was told this flower is Crab’s Claw. First time I saw in Sikim 5
years back. The bright colour and appearance as if some one pressed it
in bud stage itself, intersted me.
I thought the plant grows only in mountain area.
Recently I saw this flower in my society, but it is not that much
bright and also in adjacent society, the colour is not forming beyond
The above picture I took in Amboli 31/7/2009.
