Grewia hirsuta basic info
Scientific Name: Grewia hirsuta Vahl.
Family: Malvaceae.
Genus: Grewia.
For common names of Grewia hirsuta in different languages - See link
Description: The large flowering plant genus Grewia is today placed by most authors in the mallow family Malvaceae, in the expanded sense as proposed by in the APG. Formerly, it was placed in either the linden family (Tiliaceae) or the Sparrmanniaceae. However, these were both not monophyletic with respect to other Malvales - as already indicated by the uncertainties surrounding placement of Grewia and similar genera - and have thus been merged into the Malvaceae. Together with the bulk of the former Sparrmanniaceae, Grewia is in the subfamily Grewioideae and therein the tribe Grewieae, of which it is the type genus. - for more info about Grewia hirsuta See link
