Ornamental Plant for ID :: Thane :: ARKDEC23 : 13 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (10)
Attaching some pics of an ornamental plant similar to Neolamarckia cadamba. This is a favourite with Bonsai growers. I have seen it at 2 places – in a nursery in Karjat, Maharashtra (Dec 2014) and in a cultivated garden in Thane (Dec 2016).
Both sets are attached.
Is this Neolamarckia cadamba or its cultivar or a different species altogether?
Requested to please provide ID.


It is N. kadamba only. 


This is not Neolamarckia cadamba. It is very unlikely that N.cadamba would bloom in a pot. Looks more like a shrub. Cephalanthus sp. perhaps

Thanks … for the lead.
Googling suggests 2 possibilities – Adina rubella (Chinese buttonbush) and Cephalanthus occidentalis (common buttonbush).
Could anyone please help.


The last two picture  (9 & 10  from the top left) are those of Neonauclea endertii Ridsdale


Thanks … Any way to distinguish between all these visually similar species?


Most probably Cephalanthus occidentalis L.


It appears close to Neonauclea purpurea as per Flora of Peninsular India 
Looks different from Cephalanthus occidentalis L. as per POWO  Wikipedia  Missouri Botanical Garden  NPIN
