Tiny Convolvulaceae member distinctive because of its reniform leaves with long petioles, growing wild in Chennai outskirts,
Synonym “Convolvulus reniform“, with Tamil, Sanskrit names which translate to “Mouse Ears ‘.

In vegetative condition, this may be knowingly or unknowingly adulterated to Centella asiatica due to the similar habit and leaf structure. Sometimes, both the species found growing in the same habitat.


I have seen this growing in a dry field which had a lot of water collection earlier but now in drying phase. Couldn’t find any flowers though. In Marathi called as “Undir kani: due to the resemblance with mouse ears.
