MS 130711 -38- Wikstroemia uva-ursi:
I am attaching the photographs of Wikstroemia uva-ursi (family Thymeliaceae).
A spreading shrub 1 to 2 ft height. Photos taken at Guindy National park. Chennai.  Date : Around 2008 August ?
The plant can be used for ground cover (ornamental) also .


I think this is Wikstroemia indica (as per images and details herein), the only listed species in Flora of Peninsular India and as per POWO.

Wikstroemia uva-ursi is endemic to Hawaii as per POWO and also looks different as per Wikimedia Commons.
