Sensitive Mimosa

I think it's still a kind of Sensitive Mimosa or TickleMe plant, but the flower is a curly one, not puffy ones. I found it grows wild along with other weeds. Here, we call this plant Putri Malu (A Shy Princess).

Putri/putrika in sanskrit means daughter...this flower might be having its own importance in 'family of flowers' :)

The Malays called this pokok malu malu but it's more commonly known as the mimosa or touch me not.

In Malaysia, there is another type, the Malays use the roots for Ubat. The creepers have thorns.
