– This is most likely  Beaumontia grandiflora, a climber. It has latex.


Beaumotia grandiflora:
This photographs of Beaumotia grandiflora I took from Govt. P.G. College Balaghat (M.P.). Some days back I’ve been to that college for conduct of practical exams. My students working as assistant professors at Balaghat college asked me to id this Liana growing in the garden. I identified this plant as Beaumotia grandiflora.

– Yes from me! Have seen it many times in North East India.

– It is indeed Beumontia grandiflora, family Solanaceae. Trumpet flowers. Similar type of plant i have seen in VJBU, BYCULLA, (VICTORIA GARDEN) at Japaneese Garden. It is a huge climber.

– Pl correct the typo error: It is indeed “Beaumontia” and belongs to the family Apocynaceae.

Beaumontia murtonii Craib ??

Beaumontia. But not sure of the species. Also check for B.gandiflora. The plants are sold in the local nursery

In my observation it matches with Beaumontia murtonii Craib comparing flower budding !

Yes. You are right.

Going by Keys in Flora of China, I think it should be Beaumontia grandiflora :
4 (2) Corolla funnelform, limb attenuate at base; stamens white, filaments 3.2-6 cm 4 Beaumontia grandiflora
+ Corolla broadly campanulate, limb abruptly constricted at base; stamens yellow or orange, filaments 1.5-2.5 cm 5 Beaumontia murtonii
However, on net I could not find many images with yellow or orange stamens.
Dave’s garden gives a different view not based on stamen colour. For this a proper side view is required for id. Pl. see

Top tropicals
Please compare with the flower bud shape which looks different from B. grandiflora !

Buds look similar in both. Pl. check buds in your posted image- how it has elongated in some of the buds.
