Why last two images look different ?

ಬಳ್ಳಿ ಗೆಜ್ಜೆಗಿಡ balli gejjegida


Kannada name is O.K.


On second thought  I though I could suggest one more alternative word which is more appropriate: ಗೆಜ್ಜೆ ಬಳ್ಳಿ Gejje balli. Balli implies that it is a climbing plant. Gida= plant. Nevertheless, decision is yours.


You have correctly pointed out the contradicting parts of the name !!!!
I will correct the name to ಗೆಜ್ಜೆ ಬಳ್ಳಿ gejje balli
