Herb ID request – RK97 – 14-Jan-2013:  Requesting identification of this short herb seen in Tungareshwer. Flowers not seen but the leaves are beautiful trifoliate.


Buds seen in third picture. Pls follow up for flowers.


Thanks Shrikant ji, will definitely keep a watch on my next visit.
Meanwhile, … has suggested that it could be a Cleome species.


Is it a kind of Cleome?


Yes, this should be Cleome burmanni. The flowers should be white to pale pink.


Cleome burmannii Wight & Arn from Kappad Beach Calicut


… many thanks for sharing this plant. C. burmanni is confusing to me. Hardly any images on internet nor in our database

Here is a link showing a photo of it at BSI – Southern circle … http://164.100.52.111/pic.asp?iCat=8&iPic=105 and it looks totally different.
Hope we get clarity.


Thanks … Yes it looks different. My plant was identified in our group itself some time before. Now we have to look again.


The link showing a photo of it at BSI – Southern circle … http://164.100.52.111/pic.asp?iCat=8&iPic=105 appears to be that of Cleome chelidonii as per thread Cleome chelidonii – indiantreepix | Google Groups.

Not Cleome rutidosperma var. burmannii (Syn. Cleome burmannii ) as per another thread.


The link showing a photo of it at BSI – Southern circle … http://164.100.52.111/pic.asp?iCat=8&iPic=105 appears to be that of Cleome chelidonii as per thread Cleome chelidonii – indiantreepix | Google Groups.


Agreed …, the photo of Cleome chelidonii at BSI is mistaken for Cleome burmanni
