East-Indian screw tree is a sub-deciduous shrub or small tree with grey coloured bark.

Leaves simple, serrate margin, scabrous above and pubescent beneath.
Flowers solitary or in sparse clusters, with red petals turning pale blue when old.
Fruits greenish brown, beaked, cylindrical, spirally twisted on ripening.
The twisted shape of the fruit is what lends most of it names like screw tree and maror phali.

Some Grewia ??:  Date- 30th june, 2011
time- around 4pm
temperature- 28
Place- Botanical garden (was not labelled), Panjab University, Chandigarh
weather- partly cloudy
habit- looked like a shrub
leaves- very hairy as shown, resembling that of *Grewis asiatica*
flowers- orange to red in colour, petals fading to transparent white when about to fall, zygomorphic symmetry

fruits- not seen

Helicteres isora L.

On other note, at The Plants List (http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-2843218) surprised to find one of the synonym is Ixora versicolor Hassk. at highest confidence level.

Murudsheng in Marathi.


Yes it is Helicteres isora, leaves appear similar to that of Grewia sp, but can be easily differentiate by flowers,  this one is from family Sterculiaceae and Grewia from Tiliaceae

as i wriiten before we cannot 100% depend on The Plant List for Indian Plant Identification. its better if we do some hardwork by exploring literature than seeing on The Plant List.

Flowers of Helicteres isora from Guragon: There is some problem in flowers one flower bluish and other is red. Is that a common thing in Helicteres isora.

Recorded From: Gurgaon
Flw: July 2011

Ater pollination the flower changes colour from red to purplish-blue. Please refer to the archives of this group for our previous discussion on this. 


Please find a current science paper (Current Science<http://www.cabdirect.org/search.html?q=do%3A%22Current+Science%22> 2000
Vol. 78 No. 6 pp. 713-718) on pollination ecology of H.isora. It details about the change in color of the flowers.
I am sorry as I couldn’t attach the same because of the size of the file.
Even after making it small it was more than 5 MB that I couldn’t upload.


Some problem with the link that I had given in my previous mail.
Please visit the following link http://www.ias.ac.in/currsci/mar252000/researchcommunications.pdf


Link … gave is a nice paper on Anthropolgy of agriculture, but is on page 713 pf this rather large pdf.

Chimmony’s gift of bounty – Helicteres isora plant: The beautiful Helicteres isora plants delight with their omnipresence
in the Chimmony forest (Kerala). At some stretches, they almost form a
border along the forest trail. 

Kuttan,  a Malaya tribal, who
was our chef and later guide! He knew the names of almost all of the
trees when we went for a trek inside the forest, he kept saying “This
is Yedambiri.” 
And look carefully – don’t they look like the
miniature of a bird, perhaps a red bird with a long neck – say perhaps a
red ibis, a flamingo or a scarlet Ibis.

Sorry for only fruit and some leaves pics. For this plant i could not get much


East-Indian screw tree is a sub-deciduous shrub or small tree with grey coloured bark.
Leaves simple, serrate margin, scabrous above and pubescent beneath.
Flowers solitary or in sparse clusters, with red petals turning pale blue when old.
Fruits greenish brown, beaked, cylindrical, spirally twisted on ripening. The twisted shape of the fruit is what lends most of it names like screw tree and maror phali.

It is one of the common plants in the deciduous forests in Kerala
