Any chances of Celastrus paniculatus?, I will check habit in next visit.
Certainly not Celastrus paniculata!
I thought c. paniculatus was a vine?
Yes …, it is. I will have to recheck its habit of this plant in next visit.
May be I estimated it wrongly, or this is some other plant.
This is actually Celastrus only.
Attaching a close-up of C.paniculata flower and habit. It is distinctly a shrubby climber in Uttarakhand.
Celastrus paniculatus looks close.
