Kindly help in identification.

location:aambyvalley rd.,lonavala,pune
plant habit:shrub?

height:about 2 ft.

some plectranthus may be?

I am afraid, as it is difficult to say even the genus name based on vegetative specimen photos. But it doesn’t look any Plectranthus members!

Well … may be right

at first glance i had thought it was the dwarf variety of kalanchoe pinnata … pathorkuchi in bangla

i had several of these in my garden, cuttings were from a world class botanist curated herbal garden…

but those leaves are never this hirsute

only other thing i can remember was various plectranthus i have had the fortune to grow from seedlings over the years, some scented, other not… some bushy some trailing some make small mounds on the ground some long trails in a hanging basket…

we still need to look at the lamiaceae family i think

some knowledgeable botanist / taxonomist needs to look at this pictures set.

I would like to know too….

Coleus amboinicus Lour. ??

I think looks different from Plectranthus amboinicus

Also could not find a match as per comparative images at Plectranthus as per these images
