back of the leaves are silvery and hairy…

An ayurvedic herb… leaves used in stopping bleeding from skin wounds…
it’s thousands of hairs that help form fibrin clots, and start the process of wound healing… I read it somewhere that this was an important herb in our ancient historical almost mythic wars of Ramayana and Mahabharata.. even when Alexander invaded…. but that could be Argyreia nervosa var. speciosa … known as
Vrddhadaaruka, Vrddhadaaru, Sthavira, Sthavi-radaaru….
  

Its seeds can be misused as hallucionogenic, and are considered potentially lethal esp for children… ( as are most morning glory seeds, lysergic acid content is quite high in some species) , this creeper produces tonnes of seeds, readily sprouted and grown in sandy well drained soils…. the seed production is prolific, so be careful…

did you get to see the underside of the leaves and photograph them? and seedpods… they can be spectacular with sepals still attached to the round pods…

A Garden climber called as samudra sokh


This year i plant two plants in my college. cuttings of this plant grows very easily


AN important ayurvedic herb  … was of immense value to the army also .. to stench bleeding in ancient times…… Called vridhha daru or samudra sosh ..

I love the soft downy feel of the leaves…
used to grow abundantly along southern coast in Bengal.. not seen so commonly now a days though…
the seed pods are interesting looking too…

Sorry for posting this query, which may not be part of a routine workflow of the ‘Eflora’ group. Although the query would be easier to answer for Eflora members in Madhya Pradesh i am hopeful anyone else may also offer useful inputs.
I came across this creeper known as Tameshwar in this video from Indore http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51cv_zO2brk and would be grateful to know its botanical name. Also if anyone from Madhya Pradesh (Bhopal) would be able to tell me if its seeds or saplings are available in any nursery in Bhopal it would be very useful.

Even after seeing the video several times I could not capture the name Tameshwar, nor is this name mentioned in connection with any plant on the net or scientific books I have, but if creeper in question is one shown in opening shots and then again towards the end in this video, it should be Argyreia nervosa (Burm.f.) Boj. (syn: A. speciosa Sweet), Elephant creeper in English and locally known as samandar-ka-pat (Hindi), Bichtarak (Beng.), Samundar soka (Mar.), Samundrapala, chandrapada (S. India). I hope I am right.


Thanks …, Somewhere in the middle of the video the woody stem of a large creeper covering almost the entire front of the two storied house is shown. Would that be Argyreia nervosa? I am also sharing this with Mr Rahul who recorded the video for further clarification.


Agree with … One more creeper looks like QUISQUALIS INDICA or Rangoon Creeper


The pink flowers are Argyreia speciosa, a morning glory family/ convovulaceae family… called Vrudhha-daru (vrudhha-daruk by some), Drigha-vallari, in Sanskrit, and Samudra-shosh in gujarati, It has many uses in ayurveda, one that i remember the most is the wound healing by the leaves.
Its leaves are very interesting, hairy and greyish white on the under-surface and smooth on top, exactly symmetrical heart shaped. In fields and village farms, the hairy side is used as is by pressing into skin wounds and bandaging the wound up. The hairs prompt coagulation and the wound heals nicely with second intention. I have been told this use is ancient, in battle fields the army “vaidayaraj” always carried these leaves for the in battlefield first aid. Someone told us that it was used even when Alexander came fighting …and wounded soldiers and country folks needed much attention for skin wounds…. apocryphal story, but I like it….
I have seen it growing in gardens, and in coastal areas in Gujarat, Bengal and Andhra…
and they are vigorous climbers…
Its seeds can be misused as hallucionogenic, and are considered potentially lethal esp for children… ( as are most morning glory seeds, lysergic acid content is quite high in some species) , this creeper produces tonnes of seeds, readily sprouted and grown in sandy well drained soils…. the seed production is prolific, so be careful… this video also shows many many seedpods, your friend that made the video can get you 20 or 30 seeds plant them… and try… keep us informed of your progress.

…………………………………………

This is very interesting and I am amazed by the knowledge of … on this and I also agree that this can be related to empirical data. But science is based on theories and not on empirical data.

I was thinking why this plant has been named as Tameshwar??? “Tam” is “dark” and “Ishwar” every one knows :). So many be once plant this climber grows so luxuriantly that it gives good shade (darkness) in the area, so may be thats why its called ” god of darkness”.
People tend to give names on their own so its not a big deal. Problem arises when such names get on the references and are then being used scientifically and then later such names create confusion. One such bad example of giving Hindi names to plants is the book on Orchids of Northern Western Ghats.
For example, they call Vanda tessellata as RAKSHAS !!!; of course the name of VAMAN AMRI is derived from Dendrobium nanum!! and there are many such examples.
I am not big fan of chinese plant nomenclature but you will be surprised to know that they have unique names for all chinese plants. If you know the chinese names then actually you can find out the latin name…. thats really amazing….
Thanks again … for the detailed you have put up.


Initially the root they showed is of Elephant Glory and some leaves are also shown in the picture.
If you happen to be in new Market area then please try Forest Nursery opposite Taran Pushkar Taal and there is another Nursery there of Forest Corpn, they may have this plant.

Please identify this climber, also growing in Hampi, Karnataka.


Argyreia nervosa, I suppose.


Thank you … I missed the purple flowers in my earlier attachments.

Requesting to please ID the purple flowers captured at SGNP, Mumbai in June 2013.


This is the Silky Elephant Glory [Argyreia nervosa].

This is from a Govt. park and there was no name plate. Instead there was a plate bearing the name Argyreia nervosa. I was confused for a while. I am uploading the entire series of snaps I took there to show which one (leaves) belongs to Argyreia.
It is interesting that … has photographs of Cissampelos pareira with peltate leaves as in FoP while var. hirsuta of FoC does not have!


I think the name board is meant for the sapling (cordate leaves with acuminate tips), which looks like Argyreia nervosa.
The climber with flowers is C. pareira var. hirsuta. 


Yes …


Very beautiful pics … Only the first picture belongs to the placard, as … have said.. thanks for posting..


Yes Sir, i was very puzzled initially!

Please inform about morphological difference between ‘Argyreia nervosa var. nervosa’   and  ‘Argyreia nervosa var. speciosa’?

Thank you so much … Me too searched lot. Could not get specific difference. Going to buy few books as per … guided. Also going to buy few books on medicinal plants of India. This may help and get some information it seems. Will update on same thread in case could find something. Will keep searching.
