Plant Id needed: Please help me identify this plant. Photographed at Osho Teerth Park, Pune. Dated-3rd July 2011


This is probably Sanchezia nobilis. Needs further confirmation.


Yes I agree with … A fairly common garden plant most of us must have seen. Never made an attempt to explore it further.
Sanchezia are small trees or shrubs originating from central and south America.


Thanks for d id. As soon as I googled Sanchezia nobilis, I knew that’s it.
