Very fragrant, white flowers seen at Lalbagh on 29th March.
Flowers turning black on drying.
Could be some Species very close to Gardenia or Tarenna.
Yes most likely a Rubiaceae.. Tarenna a possibility but i am not much up on flora of tropical east africa… this seems definitely from that region
some one knowledgeable in african flowers can help
I think I have found the id of these flowers.
Macrosphyra longistyla, Rubiaceae.
