Pluchea indica is a shrub of about 1.5m. It can be found in coastal areas and scrublands, though I have seldom seen them around despite having a common status. It can be easily identified from its serrated and thick leaves and spiral arrangement.
Form of the Indian Camphorweed.
Serrated, thick, and hairless leaves.
