The plant mainly containscardiac glycosides. Earlier workers have isolated various constituentsfrom this plant, the present paper deals with isolation and structuralelucidation of a new compound A, identified as 3,5,4'-trihydroxy-6,7dimethoxyflavone-3-O--L--arabinopyranosyl-5-O--Dgalactopyranosyl-(1→4)-O--D xylopyranoside, along with a knowncompound B, identified as Myricetin from the methanol soluble ethanolic extract of the flowersof the plant. The isolated compounds were identified and characterized by various colourreactions, chemical degradation and spectral analysis. Flower extract of the plant was utilizedFor Behaviour Despair Study in animal model, by employing Forced Swim Test and TailSuspension Test. These tests indicated the potential antidepressant effect of the plant extract.
