Hi, The stems of the plant are spiny (rose-like spines), the bark is woody, and the leaves are large (the largest one is about 6.5 inches in length) and have fringed edges (like the fringes of rose leaf). The leaves are not at all thick, and do not smell, but emits a mild grassy smell when squeezed. It has grown in the same pot with a tulsi plant, and it seems as if it can grow into a large tree. The height of the plant is 7 inches, and the diameter of the bark is around 2.5 cm. Pls help.

    laura735, Thanks for the suggestion. It hasn’t started flowering yet, but it seems you are right. Regards.

    It will be hard to narrow down with out the plant’s flowers. I could only speclating for now. To my eyes these leave might be a type of Hibiscus, perhaps H. rosa-sinensis (?). Also the “rose-like spines” could be ‘stipules’? The included link show a close up of Hibiscus stipules. Maybe you could give us an up date as this plant is more mature. Best wishes!
