Bhuinchampa is a flower I have seen only in west Bengal, it’s a tuber plant, that blooms during the monsoon and sometimes a little later too. They sleep through the summer and pop up their heads with rain. There are four or five colours, golden, white, pink and reddish yellow are the ones we have successfully scattered all over our Burdwan garden. They are small but very bright and cheerful looking flower, their shape resembles tulip but are barely as big as an adult thumb or may be a wee bit bigger. I loved, loved, loved those flowers.
