Alok ji
This variety is common in warmer climates at lower altitudes. The orange flowered one (var. arvensis) commonly grows in temperate climates.

Dear Alok ji: can you please tell us of these interesting properties,
love to know ...
I always thought scarlet pimpernel to be orange-ish red to bright
red to occasionally pink..but not this heavenly blue....
thanks for sharing..

It is called poorman's barometer, poor man's weather-glass, because the flower closes, when bad weather is on march or fog is on the way.
The germanname is Gaukheil, (can be translated as healing insanity or mental illness). In ancient Greece it was used in the treatment of melancholia.
Because it is a bit toxic it is used in fishing, especially in india.
This is all from Wikipedia.
We find this herb in farmland and along the roadside and smaller ways, perhaps in june i may see some.
