Jīrṇadāru (जीर्णदारु) is a Sanskrit word referring to Argyreia nervosa (Hawaiian baby woodrose), from the Convolvulaceae family. It is classified as a medicinal plant in the system of Āyurveda (science of Indian medicine) and is used throughout literature such as the Suśrutasaṃhita and the Carakasaṃhitā. The thin roots are usually 2-4 mm in diameter and show somewhat smooth brownish exterior. The lower surface of the leaf is entirely covered with hair, which gives the leaf a silvery soft wooly appearance. The seeds are more or less triangular, 0.5 to 0.75 cm long up to 5 mm broad.
