It looks like Vitex altissima [Balage] to me. Please check.

Vitex altissima is the name comming to mind too…


This one is surely Vitex altissima.

You have been sent 2 pictures.

The plant looks like a Vitex sp.

Please check with Vitex altissima.

/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Vitex%20altissima-%20Balage.jpg

Concur. Sending one of my photographs for comparison.


Vitex altissima undoubtedly !!

This is called in Tamil as ‘Mayiladi’ and in Malayalam as ‘Naviladi’ (hope i am right). The meaning for both is ‘Foot of Peacock’ in allusion to the shape of 3-foliolate leaf together with the winged petiole.

Vitex altissima in malayalam “Mayilellu“. I am not sure about the name Naviladi because there is a difference in names in different places of
Kerala.

Thanks …, for the correction as well as Malayalam name. ‘Naviladi’ is a Kannada name as per the link: http://envis.frlht.org.in/botanical_search.php?txtbtname=vitex+al&gesp=2590%7CVitex+altissima+L.F

Id requested!
This is a tree up to 20 m tall. It’s without spines. Jhapa Eastern Nepal. 100 m asl.

Vitex altissima?

Looks exact match and a new sp. for Nepal !


thank you for pointing this out and correcting me. I thought it was some species of Rutaceae.

It’s very hard to find flowers in this tree.


Tree produces berries during September-December. Flowering: April-May
