A new species to me. Is this species introduced recently to India?

This American plant is also widely cultivated and readily naturalizes. It features in Revised Handbook of Flora of Ceylone as also in enumeration of Flowering Plants of Nepal.

Thank you sir for clarification. I am not very familiar with introduced plants and this is a good platform for my learning of such plants

Thanks and Regards,
