Yes a galphimia....
process of diagnosis for non taxonimists I guess depends on the
inflorescence details... that's what I learned from my experience with
this plant... very interesting twists and turn in this story, so I'll
share it...

I have a Galphimia gracilis in my balcony... a few months ago when I
first bought it.. did not know what it was...
did a lot of research for small yellow flowers... Zilch. .. zero...
nada.. ... nurseyman were of no use and sent me on a wild goose
chase... and then I described it to my sister, who next day without
ever seeing it told me it was a Galiphimia... voila... found it and
was impressed with her gardening knowledge... Surfing on the web with
a purpose then, I found a very nice site : at univ michigan: for
classification of galphimia... and I had my diagnosis for my
plant.... I will share the URl here...
http://www.lsa.umich.edu/herb/malpigh/GalClade/Galphimia/GalGrac.html

AND THIS IS NOT a Galphimia gracilis...

The inflorescence matches that of Galphimia glauca as Gurcharanji
hoped for....

SO BHAGYASHRI: your plant is most likely a Galphimia glauca....

url for it is http://www.lsa.umich.edu/herb/malpigh/GalClade/Galphimia/GalGlau.html

enjoy the process, I did
