Sida acuta.
Synonyms: Sida spiraeifolia, S. carpinifolia, S. ulmifolia.

Common Hindi name: Bala.
Plant: 1m. Shrub with slender branches and fibrous stems.
Leaves: Slightly concave oval or elongated leaves with a shiny surface and toothed margins.
Flower: 10mm across. The flowers are yellow, conspicuous and borne on short stalks in the leaf axils along the branches.
Fruit: The fruit is a dark brown capsule; it splits into 6-10 single-seeded segments when ripe.
Native to pantropical regions, it can be found throughout the warm regions of the world. Sida is a weed of tropical pastures.
Bala's leaves and roots are used in traditional medicine.
My apologies for earlier identifying this plant as Sida rhombifolia.

Bonjour Nirmal,
Je préfère ta précédente publication sur la même espèce car elle est plus fine avec une meilleure maitrise de la profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
