Balkar ji
This is not Eranthemum pulchellum (syn: E. nervosum) commonly grown in Delhi. That species has white bracts with green veins, cuspidate at tip and spike not more than 7.5 cm long.

This is Eranthemum purpurascens Nees with green bracts, many nerved and ciliate along margin

Please see the key jointly developed by Shrikant ji and me.

I was thinking, why not Eranthemum roseum?
