For Id from Panchkula-Command Hospital 2012: Putting forward again for your consideration please..


It has been identified as Vaccaria hispanica as per earlier thread

Yes one of the two commonest weeds in fields: Silene conoidea and Saponaria vaccaria (now vaccaria hispanica). I have yet to capture it in my camera.


Thanks again Sir, yes Silene conoidea is fairly available here, but I must say, I have never reported Vaccaria as a weed in our area (or in Haryana at large)……
