Pentapetes phoenicea L. from Hooghly:

This is an ornamental herb, once very common in home yard.
Unlike FoI (http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Midday%20Flower.html) it is known as SURJYA-MONI or DUPURE-MONI in Bengali. Another Bengali name found in a book is DUPUREY-CHANDI.
Habit & Habitat : ornamental herb, about 5.5 feet high
Date : 19/9/12, 3.55 p.m.
Place : Garalgacha (Hooghly)
sites visited :

I cannot guess why this beautiful plant is loosing popularity as an ornamental.. perhaps longer life-span and lesser period in flowering…….


These days they are going for exotic plants like Dahlia, Zinnia, Cosmos, Adenium, Techoma, Alamanda, various shades of roses and Hibiscus, ornamental cycas and many many more i do not know. However, a few of those Dahlia, Zinnia, roses were also present in my childhood.


is this wild or in someone’s garden
if wild can you see if you can take acuuting and rooit?
or are there seedspod s ?


The owner has this plant in his front yard.

If i remember well, i found this species in wild as well, though years ago.


Found this plant again, this time in the wild.


It is growing beside a ditch along a rural roadside. I think i can collect some seeds, for my mom too.

A small shrub with unique leaf shape for ID


This is the Scarlet Phoenician [Pentapetes phoenicea].


Please upload more photographs, of leaves and flowers at different angle, and also sizes. This is not the usual Pentapetes phoenicea I have.


NYPL shows a plate... with both skinny/narrow leaves and wider leaves

So … submission and … diagnosis seems correct
