In current research, Malvastrum Coromandelianum plants have been subjected to macroscopic and microscopic studies. Microscopic features revealed that the dorsiventral leaf was dorsiventral. Two types of trichomes were observed: sessile, unicellular, uniserated, and bi-cellular glandular head covering. The vascular bundle was coated with spongy parenchyma. Alkaloids, tannins, flavonoids, carbohydrates, and saponins were detected by phytochemical screening.
