Clerodendrum inerme is a hedge plant belongs to the Verbenaceae family, traditionally used for ornamental purpose in home gardens. In the present study, anti-bacterial effect of ethyl acetate, ethanol, methanol extract of Clerodendrum inerme was evaluated against the microbes Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus cereus, Kleseillea pnemoniae, E.coli by well diffusion, disc diffusion, Minimum Inhibitory Concentration. The anti-bacterial activity of ethyl acetate leaf extracts exhibited was found to be significant. There are coincidences between some of the traditional usages of this plant and experimentally observed effects of the extracts but very few biological studies available on bioactive fractions and/or pure compounds therefore, This review is an attempt to compile the exhaustive literature on Clerodendrum inerme, to create the awareness of this plant which is having potential activities in many biological aspects which will be boon to the mankind systematic way
