to be employed in cancer, as an abortifacient, antiseptic, diuretic, purgative and haemostatic. Pharmacognostical
parameters of the leaves were studied with the aim of drawing the pharmacopoeial standards for this species.
Macroscopical and microscopical characters, physico-chemical constants, phytochemical study for the presence of
