The crux of my posts with the subject line having words Names of Plants in India
is validating the names.
The photos put in such posts are not for querying ID.
Am quite comfortable with Smithia setulosa
This photo indeed shows large handsome flower of Smithia setulosa
, about 15 - 20 mm across.
All aspects about this plants are larger in comparison to other species of Smithia
found in northern Western Ghats.
The full grown plant stands about 1 - 1.5 m tall, with large compound leaves, the leaflets as large as compound leaves of the other 2 species.
Both S. hirsuta
and S. bigemina
are smaller plants, less than a metre high.
Cannot rule out a mistake by showing a wrong photo while documenting names; please do alert me.
