Scrophulariaceae ? From NandiBetta hills nr Bangalore – AS-Apr-3-2: 4 posts by 3 authors. 2 images.
Growing wild. blooming in October. At Nandi Betta hill near Bangalore.
Is this a Scrophulariceae plant ?
Pls help ID….


Plectranthus mollis (Lamiaceae).


Thank you for the id. I think you maybe right. It is a Lamiaceae member
Only the garden variety Plectranthus amboinicus is known to me.
Much of the description of Plectranthus matches, although this plant did not have succulent leaves and the inflorescence was sparse and lax.
We can hope for some more confirming responses.

Plectranthus mollis
A common wild plant

Lamiaceae plant seen in a cultivated garden in Mumbai on 10th April,16.


From the inflorescence it seems to be Coleus sp., presently Plectranthus. I am afraid, species level cannot be identified based on mere photos.


Thanks for the id of my Plectranthus plant.


its a Coleus sps. many cultivated varieties with variegated leaves can be observed in Mumbai gardens and Nurseries.


Appears close to images at Plectranthus mollis (Aiton) Spreng.
