Ornamental from Panipat: Here is an ornamental plant from Arya College, Panipat. I hope this is Rondeletia odorata Jacq. (Fragrant Panama rose) from Rubiaceae.  


– Yes, you are correct. Thanks a lot for sharing this beautiful picture. I was thinking why it has such a peculiar name and found out that the Generic name is based in Guillame Rondelet, 16th century French naturalist, and odorata as the feature suggest is due to its pleasant odour.
Please find the protologue atatched.
