Request Tree ID 123 – Savanadurga near Bangalore – RA:  This is at an elevation of 1200ft


I also thought about Careya arborea due to obovate shape of leaves. Fruit is immature and likely to grow to a size of big guava.


The fruit is spotted and more dark green in color compared to careya arborea. I think its different


Please check with Gardenia sp.


Stipule visible in the 4th pic gives me an impression of Ficus sp. Not sure though!


I agree with … id. It is Gardenia latifolia of Rubiaceae.


I think it should be same as gardenia latifolia.
I had taken pictures of gardenia latifolia in lalbagh.
Most of the times without leaves and I have seen only the fruit not the tender ones.
I will go again next week and confirm it.

Trees of Lalbagh, Bangalore – Gardenia latifolia – Indian Boxwood Tree:  Indian Boxwood is a small deciduous tree or large shrub, which is often growing on other small plants, which it eventually kills, the way Figs do. This gardenia can be easily distinguished from the others by its large leaves. Bark is greenish-grey, peeling and leaving smooth, concave, rounded depressions. 
Oppositely arranged, or whorled leaves have very short stalks, and are oval to obovate, smooth, with a small hairy gland in the axils of the veins on the underside, 6-8 in long, by about 3 in broad. 
Flowers appear singly at the end of branches. Sepal cup is bell-shaped, segments or teeth very irregular. Flowers have salver-form, meaning starting from a narrow tube and suddenly flaring into a flat arrangement of petals. Flowers are white or pale lemon-yellow, orange when fading. Flower tube is about 2 inches long, with 5-9 obliquely obovate petals, about 1/2 as long as the tube. Stigma is club-shaped, thick, and fleshy, bipartite, segments bifid. 
Berry is even, nearly spherical, crowned with the whole limbs of the sepal. (Ref. Flowers of India )

Gardenia latifolia Aiton … (family: Rubiaceae)
… a picture taken from vicinity showing structure made during late medieval period; this area has the Pandav Falls with a modest height of 30m plunging on to a tributary of river Ken. I could not capture the large water pond properly due to sunlight reflecting intensely.

Dear friends, these photos show Gardenia latifolia growing on Miliusa tomentosa; though a freak happening, certainly interesting and intriguing.


Really interesting. Thanks for sharing this interesting find…

I found it in a dry deciduous forest situated over an hill in Chennai (Vandalur hills).
It had a good smell.
The tree was a small sized about a man’s height.

Gardenia gummifera…?


The nine-lobed flower is indicative of Gardenia latifolia Aiton [Rubiaceae]. The mottled appearance of the exfoliating bark, visible to some extent in the second image, is also characteristic of this species.

Seeds collected from Vandalur, Chennai this summer.
The hollow spherical shell is left because the birds had taken away the pulp and seeds.
The fruit tastes like Limonia acidissima.

Foliage looks different. Any other foliage photos for proper ID ?

once more an important endeavour. please will you show us the follow up

Found in Horsley hills of Eastern ghats.

what date did you take this picture. what season etc and msl????


August18 and around 1000 MSL.

This plant is common in hills of Eastern ghats. Birds are fond of the fruits. The leaves appear similar to teak. This plant is mostly attached to rocks.

I have germinated the seeds successfully. Please let me know any other details you need…


Thank you … your endeavours are adding a new chapter in our history

1: identified seeds 2: their sprouting and 3: seedling documentation
i am fascinated by this one Gardenia
this was …  superb case.
and now you say you found it growing in rocks and some distance from sea level. and its fruiting in monsoon season and if birds are dispersing the seeds? it should have a nice wide range
==

fruits of some gardenia are medicinal and some a source of natural dye. thats why interesting


I told attached to rocks only… I did not told growing on rocks.

oh, great. so did you get pictures of its base? of its relationship to rocks by any chance?

Found in a hillock in Kanchipuram district of TamilNadu.


/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Gardenia.jpg
/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Gardenia__1_.jpg
Medium sized deciduous tree, bark smooth. Leaves opposite, ovate, 10-15 cm, coriaceous. Flowers sessile, solitary, terminal, 10 cm. Flowers are pure white and extremely fragrant as they open at night. Small creeping insects can be seen within flower. The very next day they turn golden yellow, lose fragrance & nbsp; and attract diurnal pollinators like bees. A crab spider merged in yellow colour is seen predating on a bee that was attracted by the golden colour.

–  Sorry, forgot to mention the name as Gardenia latifloia Soland. Local name Pendro. A rare beautiful tree distributed sparsely in dry hilly areas of central and western India. The tree is presently in flowers.


Yes, the flowers are extremely fragrant when they bloom at night but not so on the next daytime when they turn golden yellow. Fruits are 3-5 cm, globose and hard, not of any edible value.


– Have this sapling on my property. Could this be a sapling of Gardenia latifolia ?


– this seems Gardenia resinifera. Leaves for G. latifolia have to be broadly ovate and has no distribution in your area.


– forgot to mention that this was planted [and the source failed to provide its true identity]. Am familiar with Dikemali [Gardenia resinifera], hence the question.
