Hi Dinesh ji,
               Sida acuta weed of the garden.Sida acuta  is a distinct species because of its glabrous leaves and calyx.

Dinesh ji
You seem to have got it correctly. Distichous leaves, long linear stipules, basal entire portion of leaf, ciliate caudate calyx lobes, whitish corolla all point to this species. Number of carpels may be more conclusive.

Hello Dinesh I was wondering why you have posted this picture.
It has become a habit to see beautiful specimens from you and we fail to appreciate.
Its like deccan queen.....it departs on time and nobody appreciates but when it is late it is noticed.
I was sure you must be having a far better specimen of the species than this in your photostream. So I searched and this is the one.
Indeed Sida acuta

Dear Satish ji, I was not sure of the specimen I posted was indeed S. acuta ... the main concern was that the plant was not erect, and was rather growing prostrate. Another fact not seen about the flower was the typical fan-petal design which normally S. acuta and S. rhombifolia display. Thank you very very much for the appreciation, Satish ji.
