Gynura cusimbua: Gynura cusimbua of the family Asteraceae, hopefully

on a roadside in mahabeleshwar last week
Didnt see many plants, just on this one occasion
references are earlier postings in this group and www.flowersofindia.net


This is Bidens pilosa var. minor.


many thanks for the correction

I did not realise that Bidens pilosa comes without the familiar white petals.

Should be Bidens pilosa ..


Thanks for the ID, … Is it that the petals turn yellow on pollination?


I think it may be Bidens pilosa var. minor (Blume) Sherff as per details herein, which also have yellow petals as identified in another thread: Gynura cusimbua

This is Bidens… hopefully Bidens pilosa


Thank you … I thought as much but was confused because of the absence of petals.
