... Dregea volubilis (syn. Wattakaka volubilis), commonly known as: cotton milk plant, green milkweed climber, green wax flower, sneezing silk
 
In Malayalam, I found it being known as velipparuthi; correct me if it is not ... I request you to provide it in native script.
Regards.

Dear Dinesh Ji,
Dregea volubilis is
vattakkakkakkoti, wattakakacodi in Malayalam
whereas Pergularia daemia is

But you can refer these sites.

And Stephen ji, while we are discussing the common name, is it that the genus name Wattakaka is derived from Malayalam or is it the other way round ?
Thanks and regards.

You are right. The flowers are typical of Asclepiadaceae. You had earlier posted the pods ....now the flowers of Wattakaka volubilis.
