Nice image by … at :

Links you have given are for Heliotropium indicum. I don’t think your plant is Heliotropium ovalifolium. I think it appears more like Heliotropium supinum. You may further check.

Thank you. One more species identified successfully.

yes … is right, this is Heliotropium supinum 

i found this plant species on dry portion of wetland (on hedge). 

Thank you so much for substantiation.
Attaching a close up of its flowers.

I think it should be Heliotropium europaeum L. as per images herein

Stand to be corrected on the specific name.

I think it should be Heliotropium europaeum L.
