The qualitative Phytochemical screening procedure was performed on each extract. Phytochemical study reveals that alkaloids, tannins, saponins, triterpenoids, coumarins, steroids, flavonoids were present in the three extracts. An attempt has been made to highlight this folk herbal medicine through present study which will assist in the identification of fresh as well as dried crude samples of flowers and leaves anatomically and physico chemically.
