Small tree for id from Llyods Botanical Garden, Darjeeling:: NS Sept 06 : 6 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (4). This medium sized tree was found near orchidarium of Llyods Botanical garden in Darjeeling, I searched for the placard, but in vain..is this a Euonymus sp. ??

Euonymus species…. similar to http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Euonymus_europaeus ?

Missed the genus you have already identified, Sir! This may help –


Euonymusspecies in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available) 

I think it is Euonymus carnosus. It is very similar to E. grandiflorus but the leaves of grandiflorus are narrower, and the flowers are 17-22 mm diam. (In carnosus it is 10 to 12 mm diam.). Does the flowers fit?

Thank you very much for the correct id.
