Looks like a Dahlia to me..?
25 Jan, 2009
It certainly does look like an dahlia, the bud and the spent blossom are very similar to the dahlia. Naxiketa, is this the plant you have been asking us to identify for the past couple of weeks? People have been posting answers to your question, Another member is certain it is a berberis, and he has an Indian Doctor friend who can't be wrong can he!!
I have to say it doesn't look too much like a berberis or a basil so I think we need to have another look. You obviously don't agree with myself or the other member because you keep asking the same question................
Some feedback would be appreciated, people are more inclined to assist you if you do, just a suggestion. We appreciate the language difficulties and are happy to help.
After looking for edible dahlias on the internet, I could only find varieties where the root was edible, but nothing else.
After reading one of your other posts about the cooling of the mouth I'm pretty sure it's a Spilanthes acmella a.k.a. 'The Toothache Plant'.
Actually it's new name is Acmella oleracea.. Oh well at least you know now!
How anyone could think it was a Berberis I do not know!
I have just had a look for Acmella oleracea on the internet and looked at several different pictures and descriptions, well done Rudeboyz, you have solved it, definitely Acmella oleracea or Eyeball plant. I am usually a good detective with these sort of things but I take my hat off to you!!
I remembered coming across it during my many searches for unusual plants. Apparently it numbs the mouth when chewed and so is used for toothaches.
Thanks for the praise, and as you're supposed to be a good detective I'd just like to point out that it's rYdeboyz not rUdeboyz hehe.. I used to live on the same island as you a couple of years ago :-p
OMG, I'm so sorry, don't I feel like a Caulkhead nipper!!
??? Is that IOW language, Andrea?
Yes it is
