Beautiful . As my maiden surname is Ranade I was interested to know how this flower came to be known as Abutilon ranadei 

On the net I found this interesting info by you. Thanks

Common name: Son Ghanta • Marathi: सोनघंटा Son Ghanta

Botanical name: Abutilon ranadei    Family: Malvaceae (Mallow family)

 

Son Ghanta is one of the critically endangered plant species of the Western Ghats. It is endemic and restricted to four districts of Maharashtra State. This endangered species was named after N. B. Ranade who was the keeper of the Herbarium at the College of Science, Pune, who died of the plague in 1897. It is a shrub 3-5 ft tall characterized by 2 inch long bell-like hanging golden yellow flowers. The five petals are 4 cm long, orange yellow, veined with purple. Stamens are united at the base into a tube 2.5 cm long. Styles are 5, longer than the stamens. Alternately arranged leaves, 10-20 cm long, are heart-shaped, long-pointed, with toothed margins. Fruit is 2 cm long, hairy and ribbed. Flowering: January-February.

It seems even nature likes to display some of its creations in a way
that they look so artificial....specifically the colour
combination.....

I thank you Madhuri ji also for the Info about the specific epithet
and the vulnerability of the species....
