… planted by the local folks – the Indian privet – Clerodendrum inerme.
Thank you … for ID… This plant was growing wild, I did not know it was actually planted.
…, this plant grows wild in coastal regions; elsewhere is planted as hedge plant. Perhaps it “escapes” or has tendency to get naturalized.

This bush (at Varca beach, Goa in May 2015) had two types of flowers, one type looked like Clerodendrum inerme, the second I could not identify.
I think they are of the same bush (I tried to find out if they were 2 separate bushes, but it was too dense and hence I am not sure).
Requesting to please provide ID,
Clerodendrum sps. (C.inerme variety)
Thank you … is it possible that C. inerme has 2 different type of flowers?
Yes. It could be.
