Requesting to please ID this plant captured at the Bonsai exhibition at MNP, Mumbai in March 2014.
It is called yellow kamini locally….
Kamini is a common name of Murraya paniculata.
Agree leaves resemble somewhat with Murraya paniculata but the inflorescence looks totally different. Some close up of flowers should help.
this is Aglaia duperreana
Thank you …, thank you
Have been searching for this ID for very long…
Any idea why it is called yellow kamini?
because of yellow flower inflorescence.
Ornamental bush FOR ID :: Dattaji Salvi Udyan :: 08 APR 18 : 12 posts by 4 authors. 6 images.
Dattaji Salvi Udyan Thane
Date: April 8, 2018 … Altitude: about 11 m (36 feet) asl
This is a diffuse shrub, standing about 5 feet, and spreading as much, with slender stem and branches. Profuse flowering, I suppose they are buds, large inflorescence of tiny flowers. I do not recollect having seen such ornamental plant earlier, and I am not able to guess its family. Please help with ID.
Thanks … Does not look Lawsonia inermis to me. Let us wait for comments.
Dear friends, this must be Aglaia odorata; please validate,
To me also appear close as per images at
Can you check Aglaia elaeagnoidea?
I have seen at Lalbagh, Bangalore.
Thanks … Frankly, I got to know of Aglaia only when the garden contractor gave me the ID. And I got convinced too when it matched descriptions on internet. Yet thought of getting it validated, wanting to know from garden enthusiasts whether A. odorata is popular. I have seen Aglaia elaeagnoidea as a moderate sized tree along Agumbe Ghat. Let us wait for comments to know the ID.
