Saussurea obvallata, commonly known as Brahma Kamal




I noticed this flower only after my aunt had put it in a flower vase. The last picture above is taken when kept in the vase. The next day I got to see the buds. This flower, Brahma Kamal is named after Brahma, the Hindu God of creation.

Nice flower. I wish the picture was shot natural light, they would have definitely looked better.

Dear Madam!

Please change the name Saussurea obvallata to Epiphyllum oxypetalum. As u r google subscriber ur image blinks on google which misguides many people.
