BSI Flora of India with details (Volume 3- 1993) (Distribution):

Dombeya acutangula Cav. (Native of Mascarene Islands)
Dombeya calantha K. Schum. in Engler (Cultivated throughout India in gardens for its showy flowers; Native of Tropical Africa) (is a synonym of Dombeya burgessiae Gerrard ex Harv.)
Dombeya mollis Hook. (Cultivated in gardens)
Dombeya platanifolia Bojer (Cultivated in gardens)
Dombeya spectabilis Bojer (Cultivated in gardens)

Dombeya wallichii (Lindley) K. Shumann (Cultivated in gardens; Native of Madagascar)


May I request if somebody can post keys and details of Dombeya species from Flora of India.


All Dombeya in India are cultivated. So flora of India vol 3 has no keys for these species. Following species are listed as cultivated in India:

D. acutangula
D. burgessie
D. calantha
D. mastersii
D. mollis
D. platanifolia
D. spectabilis
D. wallichii

Thanks, … That is why there remains so much of confusion.

I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Dombeya

Attempts have been made to incorporate most of thespecies available in India & nearby areas with details & keys directly or through links as far as possible. It’s quite possible that there may be some discrepancy in the accepted names & synonyms taken from other links.

Species discussed so far in efloraofindia are given at the bottom of the page in the form of links against Subpages. On clicking them one can see all the details.

Any comments/ corrections are welcome.


Pl. go through Dombeya (‎‎‎Malvaceae) page with images of species in efloraofindia.

If you find any incorrect identification, pl. let us know. If anybody can send images of other species of this genera (for incorporation in the website), if any, or can identify unidentified images, it will be really nice.
