Earlier … and … have posted similar looking pictures.

I think in this regard these links may be useful:

Celastrus paniculatus ssp. aggregatus


You can upload attached image also


and for Celastrus paniculatus paniculatus


Yes, it is.


Agree with Celastrus paniculatus Willd. subsp. aggregatus K.T. Mathew
It was … & his team, who upheld the status of this subsp. with his distributional record.
Unfortunately, The Plant List has not included this intra-specific taxon yet. Wish for that inclusion soon


Oh … Thanks for digging my post of Jun 2010.
Of course now I know that it is Celastrus paniculatus
But it is interesting to know from … (with whom I had achance for some field visits) about the subspecies aggregatus.
May I know the difference between the two subsp.a ggregatus and paniculatus
I can see from the picture posted by him that the inflorescence of the latter sp appears to be erect while that of the former is drooping as seen by me??

Note the infructescence is shorter than leaf.

Is this tree?


May have been a shrub …


This may be Celastrus paniculatus-Woody climber


Id of the plant attached maybe Celastrus paniculatus a climber. I have perhaps wrongly assumed it to be a tree.


Celastrus paniculatus


Celastrus paniculatus – Malkangni, Jyotishmati. A highly useful drug in Indian Systems of medicines.


It is Celastrus paniculatus subsp. aggregatus, to be more precise!
