Rivina humilis.


nice pictures, but how did a weed from southern florida get a place in a garden ? I wonder

does it not mess up our ecology???


Neither planted nor reared in garden. But this has been noticed in the Adyar Eco Park and also along the Adyar River ecosystem in Chennai.


so is it a weed that came during the last few decades? or has it always been here in India?

Unable to Id it as Duranta species as the photograph is not very clear.   If you flash some more photographs depicting clearly the fruits (intact) , flowers and foliage the plant can be confirmed.
Nevertheless, the plant looks more like  Revina humilis.

Yes this herb is Rivinia humilis from Phytolaccaceae.
