Vitex trifolia ?
Many Thanks … for the Id. The plant looks exactly the same
Attaching close up pictures of leaves and flowers. the leaves look grayish underneath. the petiolule of the central leaflet is 1.3 cm long

requesting identification of a small road side tree
is this Vitex trifolia? Id help http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Three-Leaved%20Chaste%20Tree.html
This could be V.negundo or V.trifolia. The closer possibility is that of V.negundo. The identification key is on the leaves.
In case of Vitex trifolia, the leaflets are sessile. A better image of leaves, can confirm the identity of the plant. The sessile leaflets are seen in the link posted by you.
Am attaching the image of Vitex trifolia from my collection.
Apart from this, V.trifolia grows naturally along the coast – it is a littoral species.
I have managed to get a better image of the leaves. attaching pix of the same. the leaves do not appear to be sessile so should we say that this plant is Vitex negundo as suggested by you. Many thanks for your help and the pix from your collection of Vitex trifolia which helped me to understand the difference between the two better
Should be Vitex negundo.

these white coloured negundo flowers were a kind of change for me. I am familiar with the pale blue, lilac OR muave coloured ones which are common in Konkan and Sahyadri.
The local folks at another place Bhedaghat call this plant besharam (lit. meaning: shameless) because it dominates, and seems to be growing everywhere.

Vitex negundo var. puruprescence
To me it seems to be Vitex negundo.
Guys, Can you please identify this species? (mixed thread):
IF you can provide me with the traditional name, i can find out with my dad and let you know..
I was just googling and i have see this Vitex Negundo (nalla Vaavili – telugu, karu notchi – tamil). Some one gifted my dad that plant it is violet/ black in color and the leaves are dark violet looking black. and the flowers are also the same.. I also have a normal vitex negundo and they differ very much in color. I have a 120 acre farm 100km from hyderabad where i have it. He also said that it is one of the rarest specie. Can you please guide me on that? I can get some pics next time i go there…
check out the link of vitex negundo black.. I shall post a new topic with better photos with my D90 later… http://www.flickr.com/photos/8384193@N05/
It is Vitex negundo var. purpurescens, called as ‘Karu nochi’ கரு நொச்சி or ‘Oodha nochi’ ஊதா நொச்சி in Tamil.
as per your post.. do you confirm the pics i posted to be the same Karu Notchi which is being misused to encash the weakness of these gold hunter?
There is a possibility, due to the name and the colour of leaf. Whether it is ‘Karu nochi’ or ‘Sen kathazhai’ (Red Aloe vera), usually the plant material is not shown in full but in small, deformed pieces making id difficult or impossible. And usually some cosmetic work is done to the material to make it appear black or red in these cases. If you come across with someone selling ‘karu nochi’, pl try to post the pictures here for id.
Id confirmation is it Vitex? and which species : 6 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (2)
Habit- Small tree to a large shrub
looks like Vitex sp., trippinate compound leaves with serrate margins. Difficult to identify the species as the plant was not in blossom stage
Location- Solan, H.P
Pl. Check comparative images in efi site. May be it is of some help.

pictures taken at Aambyvalley Rd., Off Lonavala, Pune in December17.
YES. very nice close up of the fuzz/ hairs/ flowers
Can you permit me to use closeups of flowers for ppt presentation ?
Yes you can use the photos. no problem.
vitex negundo 3 and 5 leaves in HP ( Sameer Rastogi): Himachal pradesh has vitex negundo plants with whorls of 3 and 5 leaves. are these two different species or one? Out of these two, Bana (5 leaved), is used in traditional magic healing of Herpes zoster and other skin diseases. it’s surprising that 3 leaved vitex has no place in magic healing at all.
– I think you are talking about Vitex trifolia, which has trifoliolate leaves. This can easily be mistaken to V. negundo on a casual look, however, the latter species can readily be distinguished by its 5-foliolate leaves.
– vitex trifolium is found in western ghats not in himachal. so its definitely not V trifolium.
– Perhaps the matter could be resolved if photographs of both are uploaded. It is not uncommon to see 3 leaflets in V. negundo, but the inflorescence and shape and sizeof leaflets in the two species are quiet distinct.

Presenting this herbal plant for confirming the ID
Location : Chennai outskirts
Elevation : 33 mts.
Vitex sp. i like to see the whole specimen, leaves, more of them further down the twig, all the way to a main branch or the stem, if a small plant and the stem, bark etc and seeds// fruits if any
Pl. check comparative images at
As per my observation very close to V.negundo,
100 % correct …!
Very likely, … i suspect it is but before i convince myself that it is what i suspect it is to need little more data like we say in cancer diagnosis.
close is not good enough and obstetrician also say in pregnancy diagnosis, close is not enough.
Latest Mars mission also taught us, close or almost… is not good enough. so it should be in botany.
vitex negundo is an important ayurvedic and herbal medicine with extremely versatile properties. proper identification without a doubt is essential
