Dear friends,
Not sure if I have this plant in my collection in flowering stage; not able to recollect 😭


Wondering if the posted plant is some Maesa or Embelia.


It is always a pleasure to watch all your photographs.

Although I may not be able to comment on each one of them.

Wonderful pictures!


Dear friends, this must be Maesa indica for sure; else please correct me.


To me looks different from images at


Oh! Thanks … for validating. Will wait for someone to help with the ID.


By any chance, would the posted plant be some Antidesma ?


This is Embelia. For sp id, Flora of Karnataka will have to be checked.


Got the ID in facebook group Indian Flora … Tournefortia heyneana Wall. ex G. Don of Boraginaceae.
