Any idea about the family?
Vitex trifolia L. or Vitex peduncularis Wall. ex Schauer??
Any other sp is there …, rather than what you suggested,
Check with peduncularis …
Oleaceae. May check Linociera.
Does not look like …! It is trifoliate!
I do not think matches with any Vitex species as per comparative images herein.
OK I shall!
Any chance of this being near habitation?
This was in the wild near to Phulchoki hill!
So there is not much difference in elevation.
