Arumasam, Krishna kireedam or Pagoda plant (Clerodentron paniculatum; family Verbenaceae) - photo presentation by Raghu Kannoli


Arumasam, Krishna kireedam or Pagoda plant (Clerodentron paniculatum; family Verbenaceae) is a shrub that grows mostly in the wild but capable of excelling any garden-grown plant for its beautiful terminal inflorescence that lasts about six months. Orange-red- bell shaped flowers open row by row in the terminal cluster. Leaves are simple and dark green. The name attributed to it; ‘Krishna kireedam means the crown of lord Krishna; as the inflorescence is so shaped; it is a pity that this plant is not given the adequate importance it deserves.

 This flower is very important at this occasion of forthcoming Onam Festival in Kerala and being celebrated by Malayalees world-wide.
