Herb for Id from Panipat- 2012:
Yes think this is Stachytarpheta cayennensis (Syn: Stachytarpheta australis f. albiflora).
I think this should be Priva cordifolia.
Yes I agree with …, Priva cordifolia
Thanks a lot … for suggesting the id and … for reconfirmation…. I am not sure about how did this come here…does not look like any plant having a potential for being ornamental…very small inconspicuous flowers and prostrate habit…this surely does not qualify for any ornamental herb…any information about its nativity please…thanks again for id…
