Description

ROX35. In his 'Flora Indica', Roxburgh describes this species as an annual, erect and ramous plant, 'found in wet cultivated ground during the rainy and cold seasons.' Roxburgh also tells about the leaves which are used by the natives as a medicament. The drawing is inscribed 'Received from Rodney 9th June 1791', giving the name of the East India Company ship responsible for delivering the drawings to London.

Roxburgh, 'Flora Indica' (1832) v.1, p.426.
