Lajjyaboti is a creeper type of plant with branches. Its tough thin branches are full of thorns. Its leaf has some joined pinions. If anyone touches a leaf the opposite one at once comes down and joins the first one. Though Lajjyaboti flowers blossom most profusely during the rains they can be seen throughout the year.

The round- shaped flowers are light pink in color and its leaves are green which look somewhat like the feathers of a bird. The plants grow from seeds. Lajjyaboti has some medicinal qualities and is used in the treatment of piles, snake bite and dysentery. It helps cleanse the blood and is particularly useful in curing old stores and wounds.
