Abstract: The aim of the study is to investigate pharmacognostical, physico-chemical and phytochemical screening of the different extract of Capparis zeylanica It has total ash 3.1% w/w, water soluble ash 0.5% w/w, acid insoluble ash 0.5% w/w, water soluble extractives 3.8% W/W and alcohol soluble extractives 10.18% W/W. The plant showed loss on drying 9.2% W/W. The extractive values of Methanol, Pet ether, Chloroform and Ethyl acetate were 6.3%, 2.2%, 1.2% and 1.3% w/w respectively. In determination of leaf constant it revealed that stomata were present on upper epidermis of leaf having average stomatal number-9, stomatal number range- 8-10, average stomatal index-17.75 and stomatal index range-16-20. The leaf had average palisade ratio 1:7.95. And average vein-islet number is 58.4 having vein–islet range-50-63.The Fluorescence characteristic of powdered flower produce different colors with different reagents in visible and UV light. Qualitative phytochemical study of C. zeylanica showed different responses for alkaloid, glycosides, saponin, phenolic, carbohydrate etc.
