Abstract: Exacum bicolor Roxb. is a perennial herb with attractive flowers and medicinal properties. The plant is endemic to Peninsular India and now it is placed under endangered species. Its ornamental value and medicinal properties are yet to be fully exploited; non-lodging nature of plant, bi-coloured flower bunches with a long flowering period and good field life offer great future for this plant. In present paper field observations and cultivation trials on this plant are reported for its proper utilization, conservation and cultivation as a beautiful medicinal herb in tropical regions.
