We do not have any observation on this species in efi so far as at Pavetta
Though appear close as per
Or is it some other species ?
Checked on internet. Posted plant matches well. Though looks relatively with lesser number of flower clusters, with lesser number of flowers per cluster. I think it is because of the environment provided to the posted plant in the garden. It seems to be starving of ideal environment.

Saw this potted plant in a nursery in Karjat in Nov 2014.
Is this some Clerodendrum?
Does not appear to be a Clerodendrum to me.
Clerodendrum would bear 5-lobed flowers with long-exserted stamens. The 4-lobed flowers in … photographs are suggestive of a Pavetta sp. [Rubiaceae].
