Clerodendrum japonicum


Japanese Glorybower is an erect shrub up to about 2 m high. Branches are rather thick, bristly when young. Leaves are carried on stalks 2-10 cm long. Leaves are circular or nearly so, having a short tapering tip. Leaves are deeply heart-shaped at base, very shallowly toothed. Leaves are densely scaly beneath with rather large thick peltate scales. Flowers are scentless, bright red, on slender stalks up to 2 cm long.


Seen at Ashtamudi Lake.


The leaves are applied to boils. A decoction of the inflorescence is used in the treatment of gonorrhoea, haematochezia and nosebleed.
