Trek and Shoot Neelakurinji நீலக்குறிஞ்சி

Posted By : admin/ 176 0

Kurinji or Neelakurinji (Strobilanthes kunthianus) is a shrub that is found in the shola forests of the Western Ghats in South India. Nilgiri Hills, which literally means the blue mountains, got their name from the purplish blue flowers of Neelakurinji that blossoms only once in 12 years. Of all long interval bloomers (or plietesials) Strobilanthes kunthianus is the most rigorously demonstrated, with documented bloomings in 1838, 1850, 1862, 1874, 1886, 1898, 1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970 [1] 1982, 1994, 2006 and 2018

Some Kurinji flowers bloom once every seven years, and then die. Their seeds subsequently sprout and continue the cycle of life and death.

The Paliyan tribal people living in Tamil nadu used it as a reference to calculate their age.

Kurinji grows at an altitude of 1300 to 2400 metres. The plant is usually 30 to 60 cm high.
