Cultivated bush at Jijamata Udyan, Mumbai seen on 30/3/12 & 11/4/12.
Tiny buds seen when the picture was taken.
Adding one more picture taken yesterday. (22.8.13) Attachments (1)
Adding few pictures taken last month. (May’14)
An old post of mine remains unidentified…….
Since flower details from the attached images are not available (apetalous or petaloid, number of stamens etc.), it is difficult to point actual species.
Hence flowers are arranged in spikes and inflorescence morphology depicts plant is a member of Euphorbiaceae family
Such racemiform inflorescences are found in several genera of Euphorbiaceae but I am unable to pinpoint any genus other than a possible Mallotus. Further photographs are desirable.
Thanks for the interest shown.
Here are few more pictures which I had added in my earlier posts.
Will remember to take some more pictures.
