Watercolour on paper. Hand painted copy of an illustration commissioned by William Roxburgh (1751-1815). In his 'Flora Indica', Roxburgh describes this species as one of the most common plants in every part of India. It flowers at the end of the rains. Roxburgh also notes that the seeds of this species are often used as weights by jewellers, and that the sweet and mucilaginous root is employed as a substitute for liquorice. He then briefly describes three different varieties of this plant.
