This plant was bought from a nursery in Pune. The name given was Maba buxifolia.
The pics were taken mostly towards the end of the rainy season.
It is used in bonsai cutivation due to the small size of the leaves.
Requested to please identify it.


IT CAN BE Severinia buxifolia SYN. Atalantia buxifolia (Poir.) Oliv.


Thank you so much … for identifying this plant. I have this for the past 2 years but could not identify it till now.
It does resemble the images on the net.
