Campanulaceae Week: RVS3: Lobelia nicotianifolia: Lobelia nicotianifolia from W.Ghats TN.
Is this just a variant of the otherwise usually white-flowered form, or a different taxon?
This looks interesting, some what different colour. 

Pl go through this illustration of L. nicotianifolia that shows blue color of the flowers.
http://plantgenera.org/illustration.php?id_illustration=45019&language=46 
There is no floral differences between these two forms and I do feel it represents L. nicotianifolia

Sharing some pictures I guess Lobelia seguinii var. doniana (Skottsb.) E. Wimm. (or just Lobelia seguinii H. Lev. & Vaniot) shot at Chandragiri Hill Kathmandu Nepal
on 19 September 2016 at 8200 ft.
Thanks, ...
Lobelia seguinii var. doniana (Skottsb.) E.Wimm. is a syn. of Lobelia nicotianifolia Roth in J.J.Roemer & J.A.Schultes as per WCSP. 
Lobelia seguinii H.Lév. & Vaniot is a different accepted species as per WCSP.
I think your plant appears to be Lobelia nicotianifolia, which is a highly variable species as per images herein.
You can also see the comparative images in efi at ‎Lobelia

I guess it matches more with Lobelia seguinii var. doniana rather than Lobelia nicotianaefolia as per leaves flower etc.
I think the pictures added here (3 images) matches with Lobelia nicotianaefolia shot at Nagarkot Nepal on 2 March, 2014 at 6000 ft.

A medium size shrub found towards Phulna village from Gobindghat.
Very beautiful, looks like any Lobelia sp. ..
New to me..
Thanks, ..., Pl. Also check comparative images in efi site at this page. 
Thanks, ..., for the initial id.
Closest match I found from comparative images at Lobelia, is highly variable species of Lobelia nicotianifolia Roth ex Schult. 
But I am nor sure if it the same species.
Pl. send other images if you have.
Yes, agree with .... L.nicotianifolia (=Lobelia pyramidalis). It is found at this elevation in other areas of Uttarakhand too.
But Lobelia nicotianifolia of western ghats has completely different morphology....

It is a very variable species. Pl. See
https://sites.google.com/site/efloraofindia/species/a---l/c/campanulaceae/lobelia/lobelia-nicotianifolia
From Sikkim itself variations are very much. May be a Taxonomic problem yet to be resolved.
I agree that the same (L.nicotianifolia) from W.Ghats looks very different being taller, more robust with dense inflorescence.
This species under the name L. pyramidalis Wall. is well known between 1500-3000m. TPL2013 mention this as a synonym of L.nicotianifolia. Treating both (L.pyramidalis & L.nicotianifolia) as same may be erroneous (?).
Cant say anything more st this stage.
