Vellarugu is a swallow-wort plant. These are small tree-like shrubs, often found in dry and barren lands and along roadways. Swallow Wort is a perennial shrub with numerous branches. They can grow to about 4 feet to 12 feet in height and their stems are very soft. The plant has a unique aroma that makes it attractive to others.
The fruits are 2 inches to 3 inches long and 1 inch to 2 inches wide. The fruits of white berries do not have a definite shape like the fruits of other trees.
