Cleisostoma racemiferum (Lindl.) Gara 

I need to see the whole plant with leaves and leaf apex.

Looks like Cleisostoma fuerstenbergianum but this is not known from India.

May I request you to pl. post the complete plant with leaves. 

At present, not yet available sir. When I visit the site, I’ll try to take its photo though the location is very far from me.
