ID of the shrub? : 7 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (2)

Is it possible that this is an herbaceous perennial, not a shrub?

It looks much like ragweed, Ambrosia artemisiifolia (Asteraceae) to me.

You are absolutely right sir. It is a herbaceous perenial. Many thanks for the identification.

Am copying a link with the picture of Ambrosia artemisiifolia
(Asteraceae). They look different from the pictures that I have sent.
However you are right about the invasive nature of the plant.

I too think Ken is right this plant is indeed Ambrosia artemisiifolia!!

Could your plant possibly be Cardiospermum halicacabum L. Dr. Almeida’s flora description mentions leaves two ternate, petioles 2-4 cm long, ultimate segments of the leaves lanceolate, … inciso serrate, very acute at the apex and narrowed at the base.  Flowers white, 3-4 mm long, in few flowered umbellate cymes.

I think No Cardiospermum halicacabum is a climber plant with tendrils from the family Sapindaceae, but this is a shrub and does not have tendrils !!



Artemisia sp

It is a species of Artemisia
