Very informative! Just adding something about "puncture clover"- it established itself some years ago in my yard due to rain and no lawn. Its called puncture because it sets out seeds which are small tiny balls with pointy pointy ends! Literally punctures everything- wheel barrow tires and feet alike :x

My (civilian) salute to Kisana shb for his work :-)...The fruits of this weed taste like tomato. I don't know how many of you would like its fruit.

Farhan bhai can you find this book online (with your extraordinary skills of hunting online books): Wild Flowers of Pakistan by Yasin J. Nasir and Rubina A. Rafiq?
