Clerodendrum quadriloculare (Blanco) Merr., Philipp. Gov. Lab. Bur. Bull. 35: 63 1905. (Syn: Clerodendrum blancoanum Fern.-Vill.; Clerodendrum navesianum Vidal; Ligustrum quadriloculare Blanco);
This a a tall shrub growing in a private garden in Chennai.
It was full of these large bunches of whitish-pink flowers and dark leaves.
Please help me id it.
… first impression: some species of garden Ixora … but could be far away from fact.
We may also look for any Clerodendrum sp.
Thanks for the suggestion. I think it is Clerodendrum quadriloculare. The pics match.
What a time I had trying to find out which of the 400 varieties matched my pics!
There must be some method to this madness of searching but I have yet to figure it out.
Luckily I hit on the right one with some help from Google.
Clerodendrum quadriloculare for me too. There are many varieties. Could be ‘star burst’. But cannot confirm.

This plant has me puzzled.
Seen at the Friends of the Trees Exhibition in Mumbai during Feb,20.
The name suggests Pseuderanthemum carruthersii.
But I am unable to find matching flowers on searching.
Could be a new Cultivar.
… may be able to help.
This plant was really a puzzle.
Apparently, the label is wrong.
Varun Ji was kind enough to help me.
Clerodendrum quadriloculare variety Brandonii from Lamiaceae.
Absolutely brilliant Varun Ji.
