Thank you Dinesh ji, for providing (as usual) useful Information along with the fotos.
I am just wondering where toothed like a saw  can be seen? Which part of the flower / leaves?

Thanks for sharing your great work. Regards

Nalini ji, the leaves are serrated ... please click on the Aug 25, 2010 photo ... moving mouse over the photo on flickr will show a serrated leaf.
Many many thanks for the appreciation.
