... this is a name coined to suit the nature of the plant ... alludes to the general appearance and form of the crowded leaves occurring in whorls at the plant top ... the leaves have two spinous teeth at the tip and are covered with long spreading hair.

Regards.

Dear HS,

There is an adjective spiny added to bottle brush, thus spiny bottle brush, ... certainly different from the popularly known bottle brush.
This common name is coined by Flowers of India, otherwise this plant would have no name to know with.

Most of the endemic plants of Konkan are not known by any name ... perhaps because the regional folks have not found (or discovered) any good use.

For this particular plant, the botanical names themselves are unresolved for some reason(s).

Who says its scientific name is unresolved...
making new common name or local name is always confusing..
i dont go with such concept ..

none of flora work ask to make new common name.. if there are some can
be reported... because its always benefecial for the local people to
know about the plants...

There are many new common name made purposely instead of plant having
some or the other common name...

There are many examples... will not quote them... as it will hurt to
many of photographer on the site itself..

Hello HS,

Apologies for not putting references in earlier post.
At The Plants List:
1) Haplanthodes verticillatus (Roxb.) R.B.Majumdar is an unresolved name ... http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-2839226
2) Bremekampia verticillata (Roxb.) Sreem. is an unresolved name* ... http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-2683247


It is alright if one does not agree to the concept of making new name for a nameless plant.
Floras do not restrict giving new names to plants for common parlance.


Indeed there is a name kala kirayaat put in C P Khare's Indian Medicinal Plants for Haplanthus verticillatus (Roxb). Nees
Many thanks HS for pointing to this name.
 ... this name also shared by Haplanthus tentaculatus Nees.
