Are bramhi and nirgundi two different names of the same plant? If no , how can we differentiate between the two?

Brahmi is Baopa Moneri And Nirgundi is CHaste berry. Both these herbs are entirely different from each other.
Each has its own actions and cures different diseases. Brahmi plant has white flowers and chasteberry has purple flowers. Why don't you look for the image on the internet. P..S.
Brahmi is a creeping plant where as Nirgundi is a tree.
