Limnophila indica: A 10-70cm tall perennial that grows in marshy grounds. Stems branch well in the water, and the top portions stand in the waters, with dense glandular dots and hairs on above-water leaves and no vellum hairs. Leaves are in whorls of 6-10, and the above-water leaves, oval to lanceolate-shaped, 5-17mm long, 0.5-5mm wide, deeply cut themselves in pinnately or have sharp serrations. In-water leaves split themselves into thread-like segments. Flowers set themselves singly on axils; corollas are white to light red-purple, tubular, and 7-11mm in length. Bloom time: August-October.
