Description

ROX924. In his 'Flora Indica', Roxburgh describes this species as an herbaceous plant which grows wild among bushes near Calcutta; it flowers during the rains. Roxburgh also writes: '...and though the flowers are not conspicuous yet the uncommonly elegant curled wings give to the hole plant a great degree of beauty.' Roxburgh, 'Flora Indica' (1832) v.1, p.654.
