|Botanical Name :||Heliotropium curassavicum var. obovatum|
It is a small herbaceous plant that grows around the lands beside sea area (sandy lands). The plant is a very small one which can grow up to 20/30 cm in height at its maximum. The whole plant is a juicy and succulent one. The leafs are having a surface of powdery salty thing which sometimes makes it bluish green.
Flowers bloom as a cluster (or possibly an inflorescence, i am not sure). The small stalk holds lot of tiny flowers which are white in color with a touch of yellow at the middle. Small flowers are slightly tubular and waxy. In my photo you can see the plant has grown on a cement beside the road.
Photos of this article were taken from the Nijhum Dwip. It was the month of November 2012. I was doing a cycle ride on a road there and found this tiny little plant with a flower beside. I tried a lot but couldn't able to take a macro shot of the flower.
