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
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 shurb and doesnot have tendrils !!
