I think Mussaenda roxburghii Hook. f.
Mussanda philippica is a very common introduced species to India. The plant in the picture doesnt looks like M. philippica as the petals are narrow and pointed, whereas, in M.philippica, the petals are shorter but broader and the bract has many color variations. It neither looks like M.roxburghii as it doesnt have the persistent calyx (the key character of M. roxburghii).
I will certainly look in to this later and try id the same. if … can send us a picture of flower in which the calyx is highlighted or clearly visible that would of great help to id it correctly. Please add a picture with leaf too as it is an inevitable part that carry lots of key characters.
Mussaenda for sure, if it was ornamental I would have thought it to be Mussaenda luteola or it may be an escape too.
amit ornamental uid 2 2852011: Is it some Begonia sp ?
This is Rubiaceae, Musssaenda!! erythrophylla may be.
Or perhaps Mussaenda philippica ‘Queen Sirikit’ I had uploaded from Delhi.
Seems not to be begonia…that’s for sure….. we see these in Calcutta lot… giving color to gardens when there is none… may be mussandra… not sure of the botnaical binomial name though…
I think species of Mussaenda have large showy petaloid sepals but in my plant the sepals are greenish and there are pink coloured petals
Mussaenda allright. There are so many kinds.
It is 100% Mussaenda species. This variety is common in Mysore too. This could be Musssaenda!! erythrophylla as suggested by .. or Mussaenda philippica ‘Queen Sirikit’ as suggested by … Please check the details for further confirmation.
Mussaenda Flower: Captured in my native (Malnad) last month.
It may be Mussaenda philippica

mussaenda Sikkim: mussaenda seen in Sikkim. A small under herb or a small shrub
Species name, some of you may know. Please post.
Check Mussaenda treutleri Stapf which is common. There are one or two more species listed in Plant genetic resources of Sikkim by Raju et sanjappa Bull.Bot Surv.Ind 1994 accessible on Net
Could be Mussaenda roxburghii, not sure though.
Please check if Mussaenda erosa is found in Sikkim?
flower for I.D.: This photo was taken in Ratnagiri district of Maharashtra on 25th of July,2012. Some of the leaves seemed to be white in colour. I need help in identifying the species.
Some Mussaenda species….but please reduce the size of attachment.
the white leaves you are referring to should be bracts. For identification you could send more picts with bracts intact and also picts of plant showing the inflorescence (group of flowers) and entire plant as well.

I don’t really think Mussaenda can be classified based on out of focus pictures of leaves ( and that too without measurements etc, surface pictures) and NO PICTURES OF THE so called flowers and the decorative “leaf guards”.
FEEDBACK FROM THE MAKER OF THESE TWO PICTURES WILL BE APPRECIATED AS WILL SOME MORE PICTURES.
