Forgot to mention that I've seen this plant growing wild also at some
places in Arunachal Pradesh.

Regards,
Ritesh.

And Wrightia is Apocynaceae not Asclepiadaceae as in subject line.

Are W.dubia and W.coccinea one and the same. I have seen W.dubia
(syn. W. combodiensis), also called red wrigtia ( looks similar to
W.cocinea ) somewhere in US. Can anybody clarify.

What a beauty! Does anyone know if it will grow onthe plains or does it need a high altitude?
Thanks,
Padmini Raghavan.

Padminiji,

I think this can grow at lower elevations also. Have seen this plant
growing on the borders of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. Though not sure
about humidity and other factors.

Regards,
Ritesh.
