I would love to know the botanical name of this bush. The tender leaves are white. Some of them drop down too.
The plant might be Mussaenda bellila (Rubiaceae)
yes this is Mussaenda bellila
This may be Mussaenda glabrata as per discussions and keys at Amboli, MH :: Mussaenda for ID :: ARK2021-110, as the fruits appear to be glabrous..
