This is a stunning flower, locally named beautiful eyes.I saw it first in Guintubdan Lacarlota near the Bago City border. The plant is known commonly as wishbone flower, pig's ears, blue wings(if colored blue), and even as beautiful eyes in Negros Island. It is a native of Indochina. It belongs to the same plant family as the figwort, foxgloves and snapdragons.
I was lucky to visit the freeflowers.org site and saw it listed there.
Here is a newer photo taken at QC Memorial Circle with the Fujifilm HS25EXR camera.
