Please help me in identifying this small shrub found in Nilgiris district of TN. It appears to be a Jasminum sp.
Leaf: 5cm long
Fruit: c. 1 cm across
Date: 21 Oct 2012
Place: Western Catchment, Nilgiris, TN
Alt.: 2350 m asl

May be Jasminium bignoniaceum.


I could not find any details on net worth mentioning leave alone any images/ illustrations etc.

Appears close to images at Jasminum officinale L. ???


I go for Jasminum bignoniaceum


Thanks, … But why I could not find any details on net worth mentioning leave alone any images/ illustrations etc.?

There are some photos at India biodiversity portal by Jude, I think

Thanks, … This time I got lot of details. I think I was searching with a wrong spelling of the name:

This appears to be Jasminum bignoniacium Wall. characterized by compound leaves and dark purplish black fruits, usually found in W.Ghats of Nilgiri hills and southwards to Kerala and Pulney hills.
