Study of plant morphology is one of the important character that put plants into limelight in the form of their external structures which are useful in plant identification that includes of comparative morphological analysis of different plant parts like stems, roots, rhizomes, flowers present in same or different plant species. Plant morphology also includes studies of plant characters at macro and micro level. Micro morphological study includes structures of cell at micro level by taking sections and observing them microscopically. Due to botanical ambiguity in different regions of India there is need of morphological characterization of collected different varieties of Shankhpushpi. Present research study includes morphological characterization of four different ambiguous varieties of Shankhpushpi: Evolvulus alsinoids, Convolvulus microphyllus, Clitorea ternatea white and Clitorea ternatea blue at macro and micro level. So main focus of this study is to analyze structural morphological difference among these varieties.
