Thank you … for this detailed and beautiful depiction
It was a very beautiful find for me too.
Very nice upload. Though I have never seen this I thank you for showing the inflorescence and stipules which are important in identifying Grewias.
Hope it’s umbellate here as the name suggests.
Thank you … Thank you too … It is indeed umbellate sir. And yes, … and I once had a very long discussion on Grewia sp. and I would never be able to forget how he stressed on the importance of the length of various parts of the inflorescence individually and in relation with each other such as pedicel, peduncle etc. and not to mention the shape and presence of stipules too.

umbel in an umbel it seems
how in the world did you get the flowers I cant see where could the be in the tree picture
love it, you do what seems very difficult to me right now
Thank you very much, …
There were just few flowers on the tree; it is difficult to find them in photo – because the view is large and wide – from almost 5 – 6 m away.
However, from a metre’s distance – as in second-last photo – it is difficult to miss the flower.
Nice captions, …, Its a scrambling shrub!! I always found scrambled on other tree species.
Thank you very much … for the appreciation; and very very much for the enlightenment 🙂 This is my second sighting but did not realize that the plant is a scrambler !!
