I saw the flowering and fruiting of the white Nerium Oleander syn Nerium indicum locally called Kaner at Rani Baug, Mumbai on 18 August 09.

Dear Rashida,

This is not Nerium, but Thevetia neriifolia (Marathi name: Bitti). The name of the species suggests that its leaves are similar to those of Nerium!!

See Nerium oleander for comparison here..

It is not Nerium, rather Thevetia peruviana

Thank you sir for informing about the correct ID. For a non-Botanist like me both the leaves look the same! Apologies for the incorrect ID.
 
regards,
Rashida.
