ID OF THESE WILD FLOWERS AT THE SUKHNA LAKE RESERVE FOREST, CHANDIGARH : 4 posts by 3 authors.
Could the learned members of the group establish the identity of these tiny flowers growing wild at the Sukhna Lake Reserve Forests, Chandigarh? This is in the Shiwalik foothills.
These flowers were photographed on October 28, 2014.
Any background information on this flower would be welcome.
Dicliptera cuneata, I think.
… has kindly offered on my request the following perspective on the shrub:
“This plant is Peristrophe paniculata …a native of Southeast Asia and Malaysia, basically a weed by nature, this has spread to entire Indian sub-continent from plains to lower hills.. actually it is a much branched herb but gives shrub-like appearance in aggregation.. leaves towards the apex are much narrower, while the lower ones are ovate-lanceolate..
Though this belongs to Acanthaceae- the family of “Vasaka” (Adhatoda vasica) which is a valuable medicinal plant.. this is not valued for medicinal properties..”

I hope the identification is right as Dicliptera paniculata…
Could it be D.roxburhgiana? (now D.chinense).
…, your plant looks different from D. paniculata.
I think this is Dicliptera paniculata (Forssk.) I. Darbysh. only as per images and details herein.

Thanks … I hope … will soon take note of this post.
I do not think so. I am not getting any response to so many corrections sent so far.
OK, Let us mark a copy to an additional email box – email@example.com
I am marking a copy to both mail addresses.
Oh! I hope …, at least heeds and acknowledges receipt of our mails.
He may respond later when he is free from his busy schedule.
My apologies for not responding to your mails. I need to do a little bit of explaining. My wife had undergone heart surgery and is in the recovering phase.
We are advised not to engage any domestic help on account of COVID. This has complicated my life further. The two youngsters working full-time on the Database had gone home, and not been able to return. IISc has appealed to all retired faculty not to come to their labs for now. I am 80 plus. Work, has therefore come to a grinding halt. Thank you very much for taking trouble to suggest corrections.
I will have these attended at the earliest.
Thanks, … Sorry, I failed to comprehend such a situation. No hurry at all.
We all should be proud of you, for having done such an excellent work with Flora of Peninsular India.
