Euonymus species…. similar to http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Euonymus_europaeus ?
Missed the genus you have already identified, Sir! This may help –
Euonymus– species 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.
