Naregamia alata
Urulanthanny, Thattekkad, near Kothamangalam
First week of October 2018

Lovely images. I have no idea of this plant. I don’t think it grows in Delhi or around the area.


Thank you … i saw it for the time as well. apparently it is a rare shrub. endemic to peninsular India

some useful links

.


Yes, it’s …, Weed word is correct for this?


At the outset your photographs are awesome…. superb !!! Yes. the ID is correct. I have seen this plant in a few places in Western Ghats and  plenty in Wayanadu. Unable to trace my photographs. It is a very very important medicinal herb in Kerala., used for the treatment of various diseases like eczema; pruritus, scabies, jaundice, anaemia, asthama, bronchitis, arthritis, biliousness, phlegm vomiting.


I think if you write wild instead of weed, it will be better, as most of the plants have medicinal values, for some we know and for others it is yet to be discovered.

Thank you very much for confirmed the weed plant, …
Thank you very much for the appreciation and providing more information, …
Thank you very much for the appreciation and providing link, … I agree with you. I pronounced my plants as ‘weed’ because here these are not cultivated, rare and totaly aware by ‘new gen’, but I understand from ‘efloraofindia’ that all are cultivated for medicinal uses outside my area. I didn’t use pesticides or weedicide, so all most all plants are growing as ‘weeds’ in my property.
