Herb for ID from Karnal Haryana: Pls. identify the Herb, which I assume can be a species of Justicia.
It was shot sometime in August 2009 from district Karnal in Haryana.

– I still believe that this plant is closer to Justicia gendarussa rather than J. adhatoda, may be the attached pics are not that descriptive which led you to conclude it otherwise. The posted plant actually has smaller size, leaves small and narrower than and flower color towards pinkish when compared to Adahtoda vasica.


– I am uploading all the other photos for this plant available with me . Thanks a lot for your posting. But my opinion is same, the plant looks close to J. gendarussa, though leaves appear broader, it is probably due to close up shots.

ID confirmation Reqd for Justicia santapaui:

Kindly validate the captioned shrub, photographed on 09th March `12.


this was clicked near a stream at Matheran


… perhaps Justicia gendarussa (family Acanthaceae); my guess has little meaning with the only view you could afford !


How about supporting more pics


Yes … is 100 % correct. This is  Justicia gendarussa . Normally planted in to create barricade in the village and house boundaries. One of the favourite flower for purple rumped sunbird which frequently visit to collect nector.


Yes Justicia gendarussa. Leaves of this species are quite distinctive, reminding of a small Salix bush.


…, you could have avoided the guess work had you mentioned the size of the flowers as 1 cm. Flowers for J. santapaui are distinctly larger 3 cm in size. The leaves are also very different.


.

Request for ID : 060611 : AK-3:   This was taken at Maharashtra Nature Park, Mumbai on the 6th of April, 2011.
Used as a hedge…about two feet in height.


I think this can be Justicia gendarussa, the malabar nut or black vasaka.


Yes this should be Justicia gendarussa.


This may be Justicia gendarussa of FLORA INDICA.


Yeah, your identification is right. Thank you … for sharing its interesting Bengali name and complete set of good photographs. This plant has been used for fencing in different rural parts of WB. You can also find the plant in Medicinal Garden (Charak Uddyan) of Indian Botanic Garden, Howrah.


Very nice and detailed uploads … Thanks a lot for sharing.

Would appreciate if you kindly write the English transliteration of the Bangla names in brackets. It would be easier for those who can not read the same. Moreover, people like me can also know the Bangla names. It is just a personal opinion…please do it as per your convenience.


I found the Bengali names in the “Hortus Suburbanas Calcuttensis”. This is a hedge plant in our locality also.


A correction Madam, please read জগন্মদন as one of the Bengali Names.

I would be very happy to write English Transliteration as well. In this plant, they are 1) JAGONMADA(O)N, 2) JAGOT(H)MADON and 3) GANDHORAS.
