I think these plants are important for attracting butterflies in one’s garden.


I think this represents Hemigraphis repanda of Acanthaceae

For me  the ID is correct.

In fact this is a rare ornamental plant.
In fact this is a rare ornamental plant.

This is something else as looks different from Melicope denhamii (syn: Euodia ridleyi)


The plant is cultivated in one place in Mahe. It is a herb. I felt it is Euodia but could be a different genus altogether. Its correct I’d will be interesting.


This plant is Melicope denhamii (Seem.) T.G. Hartley (Rutaceae)
synonym Evodia ridleyi Hochr.

Thanks, … This is something else as looks different from Melicope denhamii (syn: Euodia ridleyi) 

Thank you very much … for confirming the identity.

It is something else.


Ok, …, it is interesting.
