Yes, most probably Jasminum flexile Vahl. of Oleaceae family.
J. flexile is a large climber sometime reaches the canopy of huge trees.

Agree with …, Jasminum flexile, most probably J. flexile var ovata?


Jasminum flexile var. ovatum (I hope you meant ovatum not ovata) is become synonym of J. flexile Vahl, according to “the plant list” http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-351955

Family: Oleaceae
Date: 11th January 2014

It could be Jasminum coarctatum


Could be Jasminum malabaricum


If it has fragrance it is Juhi.


Thank you ….

As with any Jasminum sp. the first thing I did was to check the smell. Forgot to include this detail in the initial post. There was NO fragrance.


Jasminum species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available) 


The images are of Jasminum flexile var. flexile.


This is Jaminum flexile var. travancorense, not J.flexile var. flexile as suggested by …

Please help me with the name irampanam mullai in Tamil script … ref: ENVIS-FRLHT


I think “irampanam” is not a Tamil word (or at least I don’t know!). Google search shows that it is a name of a place in Kerala. So it could be a Malayalam name.

Mullai (the name usually applied to Jasminum auriculatum) is written as முல்லை


OK, thanks very much, …


I found an entry of ramabanam mullai in The Useful Plants of India published by NISCAIR. Does it help to arrive to any valid spelling ?


Yes, …!

Ramabanam mullai may be written as இராமபாணம் முல்லை.
Although ‘இ’ is prefixed in the Tamil version of ‘Ramabanam’, it is not usually transcribed as ‘I-ramabanam’.
The name ‘irampanam’, which you mentioned in your first email had ‘p’-anam instead of ‘b’-anam changing the meaning from arrow (‘banam’, பாணம்) to drink (‘panam’ பானம்).


Thank you very much …! Great help !!

Will put this name இராமபாணம் முல்லை ramabanam mullai in the database,

–  Looks like a variety of Jasminum adenophyllum.
Common name: Bluegrape jasmine, Princess jasmine.

There are many variieties of this climber. One has to check the fruits also for confirmation of the identification. Supposed to be endemic to Meghalaya ?


I think closer to images at Jasminum dispermum Wall.


I think this appears close to images at Jasminum flexile Vahl
