Scaevola taccada ?;
Tree for ID – Dandeli – 22022014-Ampajit : 13 posts by 6 authors. 3 images.
Please help me ID this tree.
It was a very tall and beautiful tree. These are the only pics i have.
The tree was neither fruiting nor flowering when i took this pic.
Scaevola sp…..at least the leaf morphology reminds that…
Isnt Scaevola a beach plant? This is a full fledged tree and that too a very tall tree.
Scaevola species so far in efi
So we can close this thread by finalising that this is one of the Scaevola sp. Thanks all for the help.
I don’t think we can conclude this thread as resolved.
There is no genus by the name of genus Scaveola.
Yes there is a genus by the name of Scaevola, but most species are annual or perennial herbs. A few are shrubs and the common species often planted also S. frutescens now known as S. taccada is a spreading shrub which may reach at the most 3 m in height. This seems to be a tall tree and can’t be a species of Scaevola.
Let us hunt for an appropriate ID. Flowers should help.
Sure … Even my understanding of Scaveola was similar and had never seen a full fledged tree. Unfortunately there is no way i can get the flowers for this as i had taken the pics when i went on trip to Dandeli. However i agree to pursue and lets wait for more comments to see whether we get any further clue.
Looks like Scaevola taccada
…, i dont think its a scaevola species. As mentioned earlier, most of the Scaevola species are herbs or shrubs… this is a very tall and large tree.
After seeing the flowers in … photographs from Java I feel … has mixed up the two plants. The first and third photographs may belong to Scaevola taccada, as leaves look very similar to that of … and plant looks shrubby. The tall tree shown in second photograph is also visible in background in third photograph. It may be a different plant. Perhaps that may solve confusion. I hope I am not very wrong.
I think same as in another thread: ID help needed-AA02-22-02-2017 2 (still unidentified)
