ID30032011PHK1: Is it Combretum extensum ?
Photographed at Kanakeshwar, Alibag

In Kankeshwar there is Combretum albidum and Combretum obvatum

My preference goes to C. albidum of Combretaceae family.

I need specimen to determine it correctly.




I guess Combretum albidum 

This can be Hiptage madablota./H. benghalensis which has similar leaves Pl
check the illustration.
Mind you this is a guess similar to that by …
Without flowers it is difficult to ID.
Zoom on the leaf illustration here and your picture.

Photograph 866 is a species of Combretum.

Climber on the fence: Could you ID the species and family of a plant climbing on the fence
in Depok West Java please.
I have never seen this anywhere else. 

Yes this is Quis quallis… which means what where… beautiful flowers
comes in double petalled variety also….
I just bought a dwarf variety… very small leaves… 1/4th size or even smaller than the original, and scant flowers….
NOW IT grows in INDIA< BURMA< USA ( Florida , Georgia, California Nevada  etc) .... all over... originally from Burma I think... 

Very strange looking Quisqualis!! seems like a hybrid!!! or polyploid!! 

..: you are right … Yes, thanks for pointing it out…
when I looked at the flowers this morning again…THIS IS THE DOUBLE PETALLED VARIETY …. I used to have one…
BUT ITS STILL QUIS QUALIS….  I have not seen one of the double variety in calcutta gardens, only once in a while at special nurseries or at the annual annual Hort garden show…
