Other common names include rhombus-leaved sidaPaddy’s lucernejelly leaf, and also somewhat confusingly as Cuban juteQueensland-hemp, and Indian hemp (although S. rhombifolia is not related to either jute or hemp). Synonyms include Malva rhombifolia. It is used in Ayurvedic medicine, where it is known as kurumthotti.
