Date/Time-: 13/03/11   –     1 1:40

Location- Place, Altitude – Kaiga , Uttar Kannada ,Karnataka, 380 mtrs
Habitat- Garden/ Urban/ Wild/ Type-    Wild
Plant Habit- Tree/ Shrub/ Climber/ Herb-Tree

– It is Callicarpa macrophylla of the same family-Verbenaceae (now Lamiaceae).


I think it should be Callicarpa tomentosa as per keys & images herein.



Callicarpa species for ID: Attachments (4)
This Callicarpa plant (A small tree) was observed in Phansad. I think it is Callicarpa tomentosa Syn. C.lanata acc. to BSI Flora Mah.
FOI site shows similar plant as Callicarpa macrophylla.  Are they same or different?

This looks like Callicarpa tomentosa – one of the differences being that the leaves here have entire margins whereas in Callicarpa macrophylla the leaves have dentate margins.


Leaf blades distinctly serrate, oblong or narrowly oblong-ovate; mature fruit white………C. macrophylla

Leaf blades entire, repand or minutely denticulate, broadly ovate; mature fruit purple……C. tomentosa
They are two distinct species with lot of confusion in synonyms
Here is C. macrophylla from Delhi

Beauty berry… are there any fruits developing now… its been a month since the flowers and buds pics..
does this variety develop the bright mauve beauty berries are seen in photographs from temperate countries?

I wish I could have found time to revisit the place and check out the berries.
My India visit was very short and hectic this time.

Would love to see the berries sometime.

For the link above species should be Callicarpa tomentosa (L.) L. because in C. macrophylla drupes always white, and the linked web links from Dineshji have already changed the names in Flickr.

Hairy plant with pink flowers, big leaves in Matheran. : 7 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (8)- around 600 kb each.
Please help identify tree with attached tree pictures.
Location: Matheran
Date: Mid December 2018
Stem, leaves, petiole, peduncle, calyx are hairy.
Big tree with few insects resting on it. Sorry, too much dust due to road side location.

Pls check Callicarpa sp. May be Callicarpa macrophylla Vahl  ??

Thank you very much … 🙏
Seems it is Callicarpa tomentosa as it has hairs all over and margin of leaf is entire. Even flower pictures matches with https://sites.google.com/site/efloraofindia/species/a—l/l/lamiaceae/callicarpa/callicarpa-tomentosa.
As this was not fruiting season, could not picture fruit colour. But rest of the characters points towards tomentosa. Please confirm.
Thanks to such beautiful people of efloraofindia
