Tabernaemontana alternifolia?


There is another species in Karnataka, viz. T. gamblei which has caudate-acuminate leaves and long-beaked apex of fruits.


is this is wild or planted?


efi page on Tabernaemontana alternifolia 
Tabernaemontana species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available)


I have seen the shrub in wild condition in Goa and Andamans (where we were calling it T. crispa).


The status of Tabernaemontana gamblei needs a closer inspection.


 

/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Tabernaemontana-IMG_8270.JPG
Cultivated, garden plant seen at a plant nursery on 6th July,15.

It was a very small sapling with a single flower.


T alternifolia, a small wild tree in w ghats. 


Many thanks for the Species id.
I thought it to be Nag Kuda, wasn’t too sure.

Thank you so much … One more threatened species…
World Conservation Monitoring Centre 1998. Tabernaemontana heyneana. 2006 IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
This is called Nagkuda in Marathi and used in Ayurveda..
Wander why someone named it ‘T. alternifolia’ besides opposite diccussate phyllotaxy.

Need to check the flowers before final ID.


yes flowers and may even the fruits, agree with …


Thanks …,
      Do not have fruit or flowers photo with me. The tree seems young age and not matured as per girth of trunk.
Off course I was too far from this tree so could not see fallen fruits etc.
Searched on web about various Tabernaemontana species in India, and following is analysis.
As per photos attached, the bark of the tree is yellowish.

Tabernaemontana cerifera: – Shrub
Tabernaemontana dichotoma: – Leaf apex is acute
Tabernaemontana divaricata: – Shrub or very small tree.
