Chrozophora
oblongifolia (Delile) A.Juss. ex Spreng., Syst. Veg. 3: 850 1826. (Syn: Croton oblongifolius Delile);

  
Chrozophora from Oman.
Had posted on our group earlier.
... had suggested Chrozophora tinctoria, with leaves much longer than broad, with pointed apex and somewhat upcurved undulate margin.
Kindly validate.
This is Chrozophora rottleri (Geisl.) A.Juss. ex Spreng.
The leaves in my picture are quite different from the pictures available on the net for Chrozophora rottleri.
This has been identified by Dr Shahina Ghazanfar of Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew as Chrozophora oblongifolia.
Adding some more pictures.

Wild plant for ID : 230511 : AK-1: You had posted fruits of Chrozophora.
This picture that I have taken here at Muscat, Oman also looks similar.
These were taken on the 27th of August, 2010.
Could it be Chrozophora?

Your plant should be Chrozophora tinctoria with leaves much longer than broad, with pointed apex and somewhat upcurved undulate margin. The plant is distributed between Africa and Arabia, extending to Pakistan http://www.treknature.com/gallery/Asia/Pakistan/photo119638.htm http://luirig.altervista.org/cpm/thumbnails2.php?search=Chrozophora+t...
