Dracaena terniflora posted by Dinesh ji from South India is possibly D. thwaitesii Regel, the only wild species known to occur in peninsular India and Sri Lanka.
This is for your kind information please.
Kind regards,
Tapas.

Thank you very much Tapas ji for suggesting this possibility. I had got this ID from Shrikant ji Ingalhalikar.
I searched for Dracaena thwaitesii Regel in Google to know more about it; but was not able to find any results in Indian context.

Dracaena terniflora Roxb., however, is listed in Flora of Maharashtra, distributed in Konkan and Kolhapur.
It is also listed in Gamble's Flora (screenshot seen in Flora of Peninsular India).

I suppose you have given us information based on revision of  the genus.

Regards.
Dinesh

Dear Dinesh ji and Garg ji,
D. terniflora, originally described from Sylhet in Bangladesh is a highly misinterpreted species. My observations are based on examination of type specimens.
The type of D. thwaitesii shows simple inflorescence with often one or two branches near the base and small flowers, up to 10 mm long. Your images from Karnataka agree well with that.
D. terniflora bears much larger flowers and paniculate inflorescence.
I will reach back to you with final conclusions in near future.
Regards,
Tapas.

Thank you very much dear Tapas ji.
I am convinced with your views.
I will correct my notes at flickr accordingly.
