This is one of the tiny little beauty in our Boisa Beel and surrounding area. Scientifically they are called Jussiaea repensGenerally, they are found mostly in shallow depth. Though as the water-level goes down they are found in that mud occupied areas too.


Look at the leaves- they very much resemble those of Catharanthus roseus (নয়নতারা). The roots are another significant characteristic feature of this Floating Primrose Willow. The Water velvet or Mosquitofern (Azolla pinnata) that surrounds them is also a significant plant species.

Both the images are taken in the Boisa Beel.
