Ehretia laevis

from Karnal By Pass. shot near the boundary of DWR Karnal
Family: Boraginaceae


It may be Ehretia aspera if it is a shrub rather than a tree. If you have more closeup pictures of leaves it will be useful for differentiating…(Still it can be Ehretia laevis though)


Ehretia laevis, I hope you have photographed it in April-May, when it flowers in Delhi


/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Ehretia%20leavis.jpg

Sir Pics were taken on 18 june 2011 as printed on pics itself. In those days i was on Flying Squad duty in Colleges of karnal. Although it was not so small we may say it woody shrub or small tree. attaching i more photo


Yes it is Ehretia laevis,, lovely pic…


There are a few things I find difficult to ignore.
1. Ehretia laevis is one of the few very early flowering trees in Delhi, starting its flowering towards end of February and flowering season ends around 10th of March. Even fruits are fully mature in June. You have photographs well flowering plant 18 June.
2. I have checked my photographs from Delhi, the corolla is clearly with acute tips. Yours has corolla lobes with rounded tips.
3. The leaves of E. laevis are acute to acuminate. Yours new photograph shows obtuse leaves.
4. E. laevis is a tree. You say it is perhaps a shrub.

All these suggest your plant to be E. obtusifolia. You may please check.


Sir Agree with your observations. As it is being identified as E leavis by us/our teachers and none of the flora of haryana by Jain etal as well as Kumar reported E obtusifolia from Haryana, so we have not even tried to think about other sp. Perhaps a great mistake. one more thing it is very common in Karnal Panipat distriact so a how a taxonomist can skip this while working on flora of such a small and easily approachable state.

Thanks for clarifying the situation. However i will try to visit that place again to see the situation Again (Tree/shrub)

The key in BSI Flora of Mah.
1. Flowers usually in terminal corymbose-cymes E.aspera.
1. Flowers in axillary or lateral or terminal lax cymes of unilateral spikes or racemes:
2. Leaves symmetric, dark brown when dry, cymes longer than 1/2 the length of lamina E.indica
2. Leaves asymmetric, pale greenish when dry, cymes longer than lamina E. laevis
Ehretia aspera is very common around Pune while E laevis is relatively rare.
My field observation : Generally A. aspera are shrub like. The leaves are rough as against glabrous in Ehretia laevis
Will wait for further comments.


Kew Plant List treats E. aspera as synonym of E. laevis


Sir Situation not clear till now will be going there again soon to see the fruits and other characters


Few months back i had seen one Ehretia Shrub at the outskirts of Pune.
After reffereing to “Flora of Bombay– T.Cooke” i concluded that the shrub i had seen is Ehretia aspera Roxb. This was also validated by ….. As per …, E. aspera Roxb. is a common shrub around Pune where as E. laevis Roxb. is a tree planted in Pune and has bigger and glabrous leaves. The syn. E. aspera might have a different author.
I am sending the scanned copies of the relevant pages from “Flora of Bombay– T.Cooke”.
It clearly indicates E. aspera as Ehretia aspera Roxb.
Kindly have a look at these pages…
Also sharing the photographs of E.aspera Roxb.

After going through all the posts on Ehretia in efi & reorganising them in efi, I feel it may be Ehretia laevis only as per images herein.

Any feedback is welcome.


I too agree it is E.laevis only

Edible use:

fruit is tasteless but is eaten
… inner bark (as VEGETABLE, in times of famine) is mixed with flour and eaten.

Quoted from Henriette’s Herbal<>


-Good to know about uses of this tree common in Delhi on Roadsides


I somehow feel that leaves are not glabrous so it may be Ehretia aspera. Pl. validate or otherwise.


Possible … Thanks for validating.

I must say, this particular plant was found in a resident’s compound in Thane city.
It could be a species of Ehretia that is planted as ornamental.

Will revise my notes; I will go with what is decided in this post.


Inflorescence also looks different for me.

Pl. see images of both Ehretia aspera & Ehretia laevis at these links.


Thanks … I hope the inflorescence helps those familiar with Ehretia to comment. The Ehretia pages have lot of discussion on aspera VS laevis. At this time, I am not able to go through all notes.


I think it is Ehretia laevis. Would expect to see more obvious pubescence otherwise.
Talbot says that E laevis is found in the moister forests whereas E aspera is invariably confined to desert and barren stony regions.
I have never come across E aspera in Thane area. Would be interested to hear if anyone has.



/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/004-4.JPG

Please identify this wild shrubby tree growing in JNU campus. It is flowering now and forms small orange-red berries later.

– Yes Ehretia laevis, flowering profusely in Delhi these days.


– It is surprising and good news too. In Pune the hills surrounding the city have many shrubs of Ehretia aspera. I hardly know 1or 2 trees of Ehretia laevis from Pune. The flowers of both appear almost same; will post them in a separate thread.



/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Goa_1%20092.jpg

Goa photo for identification – 9: 1 image. For identification please


It may be Maesa indica

Plants are variable in their leaf margin and shape too


I think it is Ehretia laevis, too.



Another tree for id from the Chamera Dam side…
Location Kalatope, Chamba
Altitude 1200 mts
Habit Tree
Habitat wild
Height 4 mts
Season March

It may be an Ehretia species.
(…, it must have been a very difficult collection, I think, looking at the location!!)


Ehretia laevis, very profusely flowering now in Delhi also.


Yes it was a steep kind of slope …, where I had slid down to take the close-up of the flowers… but I was confident due to the fact that there were a lot of bushes on that slope and had I slipped…
I would have definitely been caught by the thorns of Berberis aristata bushes…. 🙂



/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/ehretia-laevis-Delhi-1.jpg

Common tree along roadsides in Delhi, and one of the earlier ones to flower.

Please read Ehretis as Ehretia.


trees are mostly 5-8 m tall in Delhi.


Name of the Species: Ehretia laevis
Common/Local Name: Ajaan, Chamrod
Family: Boraginaceae
Photographed on: 08th Jan., 2012
Photographed at: Barvi Dam Forest, Badlapur, Maharashtra.
Habitat: Deciduous forest.

Description: Small deciduous tree, with short stem and grey bark, occasionally common.


Great find. Looking at the pictures the leaves appear glabrous and not rough to call it Ehretia aspera another close species.


find attached the remaining pics of the captioned tree……


I can’t feel the leaves on looking at the pictures but I will stick to my earlier perception of this being Ehretia laevis. अजान
If someone goes to Alandi one can find the Ajan tree there; as Sant Dnyaneshwar took Samadhi near the base of this tree. The tree is supposed to be still there.


I also think Ehretia laevis.

One of the earliest trees to flower in Delhi.


nice, one more Sacred tree


you mentioned it is Sacred Tree. Is there any geographical identity of it in any specific location or throughout the country it is recognised as sacred ?


one saint … samadhi … makes it as sacred as the bodhi tree for Buddha… may be we can start a list right here
one saint, one tree… becomes sacred… one Budhha, one Mahavira, one Adinath…
one… one one…
you see the pattern
so, one Sant Dnyaneshwar… one Ehretia laevis. अजान tree in Alandi…
sacred as far as I’m concerned…

as far as my thinking goes, nobody else needs to have mentioned something for me to start something… I hope you understand..
I just added this to my own list of sacred trees in India …

simply that i dont care if the whole country has already recognized it as holy…
to me it behooves its addition to sacred trees list i have been making…. personal choice/personal list…

Leaves glabrous. Cymes longer than leaf lamina……Ehretia laevis.


The Gujarati name of this tree – વઢવારડી [Vadhwaardi] – is derived from વઢવાડ [Vadhwaad], meaning ‘quarrel’.

In the province of myth and moonshine, the timber of this tree has been lumbered with a singular nuisance value, its utility being offset by the notion that the presence of this wood in one’s home would lead to implacable spats and quarrels in the household!


SO just like a pure energy good/sacred tree mother nature designed bad energy quarrel promoting trees?????
what a myth?
wonder if its aura has been photographed in Kirlian photography and compared with the auras/energies of the sacred trees and flowers…
come to think of it, this would be nice summer project for a student …
does any of you have kirlian photography equipment?


I somehow feel that leaves are not glabrous so it may be Ehretia aspera

Pl. validate or otherwise.


It looks like E.aspera/ syn. E.laevis


Thanks, … But both are different. Pl. see Ehretia aspera & Ehretia laevis


I think it is Ehretia laevis. Would expect to see more obvious pubescence otherwise.

About 9 feet in height, glossy glabrous leaves with obvious pinnate venation, flowers about 10mm across.
Flowering and few fruits in end February.
Please help Id.

This looks like Ehretia laevis..


I too think it as Ehretia laevis.


Yes, Ehretia laevis Roxb

…, Thanks for the ID on this plant, new to me.
I was looking up the earlier threads , and confirmed that this plant is Ehretia leavis Roxb.,based on the descriptions in the links below…..
Along the way i learned about the differences between E. leavis and E.aspera. :
It seems to depend only on the texture and size of of the leaves. This plant had large leaves size (10 – 16 ) cm X (8-10 cm), mostly ovate elliptic , often with oblique base and obtuse acuminate apex.
The leaves are chartaceous, of medium stiffness, glabrous to the touch, but close-ups show sparse minute hairs adaxially, hence glabrescent. Abaxially there “appear” to be concentrations of minute hairs in the leaf axils, but i need to reconfirm this

In any case the leaves are not pubescent.

The peduncle and calyx are yellowish brown pubescent, and the flowers are (sub) sessile.

Attaching some more cloes-ups.

Season : Nov 2018
Description of flowers: Tiny white flowers in a Bunch.
Size of flower : About 1-1.5 cm. Similar in size to Bakul Flowers.


This is Ehretia laevis, and is quite common in wild… I believe the one you have seen must also be wild ..!!


a first for me. though its sometimes talked about by local traditional healers of bengal. never seen it in urban areas.


Thanks a lot. confirmed it form the Eflora site. Chamror in Hindi.

Small tree for identification 261013MK02 : Attachments (6).  6 posts by 4 authors.
Please help me in identifying this small tree found in dry scrub forests.
Fruits are less than one cm across. Could this be any Boraginaceae member?
Place: Theni dist., TN
Date: 10 Oct 2013
Alt.: 450 m asl

The scorpioid cyme suggests it to be Boraginaceae as you have already mentioned. Any Ehretia species??


A distant looking guess from my side….. as this doesn’t look like Ehretia sp. to me.. can this be a Salvadora sp.???


It looks like Cordia sp, Boraginacece


A species of Ehretia


Yes it’s Ehretia sp. similar to acuminata,


Ehretia aspera Willd. ??


I think it is close to the images at Ehretia laevis Roxb.

tree FOR ID :: Iruppu Falls, Coorg :: 12 NOV 19 : 4 posts by 3 authors. 5 images.
Iruppu Falls  Coorg
Date: November 12, 2019 … Altitude range: about 850 – 1,000 m (2,800 – 3,300 ft) asl
ID please  
Dear friends,
The tiny flowers could be just about 5 – 6 mm across. The undercover tree, or perhaps large shrub, is growing on slope.

Ehretia canarensis


Thank you very very much, …, for the ID !!


Thanks, … The Plant List Ver. 1.1, Catalogue of life, GBIF and India Biodiversity Postal, all treat Ehretia canarensis Miq. ex C. B. Cl. as a syn. of Ehretia laevis (Rottler ex G. Don) Roxb., although Flora of peninsular India treat it as separately.
Do we need to treat it as separately ? Is there any key between the two ? None of the links of Ehretia species in the Flora of Peninsular India gives keys between the two.

Tree for Id Confirmation_Pune: 4 + 3 images.
Observed this small tree on one of the hills in Pune (Warje area). There are almost 10-15 trees of this species on the same contour line of this hill. White flowers were attracting lots of bees.
Observed in May 2021

Height -12-14 feet
Flowers- while, fragrant
I think it is Ehretia laevis
Kindly confirm.
(apologies for not good pics, I had only mobile with me then)

It is an Ehretia sp. for sure. Hard to determine the species without ascertaining the texture of the leaves. If the leaves happen to be rough & hairy, it would be E. aspera, which occurs wild in Pune.


Yes, you’re right Neha Ma’am, it’s Ehretia laevis but now it’s synonym to aspera as suggested …,


From me also it is Ehretia sps. Hope you have close ups to post. If so please post.


Went again to the plant location for pictures of leaves. Found fruits too this time.  Hope these pictures would help in id confirmation.
3 images.


Very nice upload. I think the ID is correct: https://indiabiodiversity.org/species/show/265749


To me it is Ehretia laevis, as per images and details herein.

It is different from images and details at Ehretia aspera
This is accepted by Catalogue of Life as per CoL 1 and CoL2
However, POWO‘s interpretation of E. laevis Roxb. being a syn. of E. aspera Willd. as per link, is not correct.

Streblus asper Lour. (accepted name) : 1 post by 1 author. Attachments (5) – around 1 Mb each.

Sharing some pictures I guess is Streblus asper Lour. (accepted name)
shot at Kurintar Nepal on 12 April 2012 (Fruits) and 30 December 2013 (Flowers).

Nepali names: बेडुला  Bedulaa/ काक्सी Kaaksee/ सिहोर Sihor/ सोडा Sodaa/ दातुन Daatun



To me also appear close to images at Streblus asper


There are two plants …, The first two images lac of information, need some more, another three are Ehretia laevis,


All images are from the same plant at different time, so all images should be Ehretia laevis Roxb.

Dear …: We need to amend in then least.


If you’re sure all are the same plant, the first two are might be too young inflorescence,


Yes these are budding stage of flowers.


Ok
