The present study has been carried out on medicinally important plant Oxalis is a small, appressed at nodes, stem creeping and rooting at nodes, leaves are rich in Oxalic acid and are used in Ayurvedic medicine.It is commonly called as yellow wood sorrel, ambushi. to standardize the plant anatomical features such as anatomy of nodes, petioles and leaves and dermatological parameters were screened; in addition to these parameters the plant was screened phytochemically for major chemical groups such as volatile oil, starch, proteins, tannin, saponins, fats, glucosides and alkaloids.
