Please help me to identify this Malvaceae herb found near agricultural fields and fallow lands. I have no idea whether it is cultivated or not.

Hibiscus panduraeformis


I think this plant is Abelmoschus moschatus Medik. , Malvenfam. 46. 1787 from the family Malvaceae. The leaves in these plants are dented along the margin and not palmately lobes like “Bhendi“, this character can be seen from a single potion of a young leaf visible. Arati Ji kindly try to take the photo of the leaves , this helps a lot during identification.

Yes this is a Abelmoschus moschatu , we  also having same plant in Kachchh-Gujarat (locally call WILD BHINDI), in wild condition.

Our farmers are cultivating it as medicinal crop. In trade it is known as Ambrette, Mushkdana or Kasturibhindi


‘Abelmoschus moschatus’ is called ‘Van Bhendi’ ‘वन भेंडी’ / ‘Kastur Bhendi’ -कस्‍तूर भेंडी’ in Marathi.

Does not matches with images at Abelmoschus moschatus Medik.

I think this should be Hibiscus panduriformis.
