Kanakambaram flowers are known as crossandra in english. Crossandra Infundibuliformis is the botonical name for Kanakambaram.

Smells like Jovan Musk perfume.

Crossandra, Firecracker Flower, is called Aboli in Marathi, Abuli in konkani.

Family: Acanthaceae (acanthus or ruellia family) - [ (ah-kanth-AY-see-ay) from the Greek Ãikantha, meaning thorn, spine, or spike ]

Origin: India and Malaya

In South India, Kanakambaram is the favourite flowers of ladies to put in their hair. It competes strongly with jasmine to adorn the south-Indian hair-do's.

The crossandra is in the family with Mexican petunias, or ruellias, and the Mississippi Medallion award-winning yellow shrimp plant. This tropical from India and Sri Lanka offers a welcome orange, salmon or yellow to the filtered-light area. In addition to the flowers that are practically non-stop for the entire season, the foliage also offers added interest. The leaves are glossy and most striking. Choose a site with well-drained, fertile soil with perhaps a little morning sun. If you have tight, heavy clay soil, the crossandra will reward you for incorporating 3 to 4 inches of organic matter. As the plant grows, keep it deadheaded and pinched back; it will maintain a bushy shape and keep blooming with each new flush of growth.
