I found this very interesting since i have not come across a Shankha Pushpa tree before! The tree had long since finished blooming & i was lucky to catch just the last flower..:) - Pic taken in Lalbagh Botanical Garden,Bangalore on 12-12-2010

Interestingly, if I am not wrong, the herbaceous Clitoria species is also growing below the tree in the 4h photograph.

Gurcharanji  The shrub under the tree i think belongs to Convolvulaceae family? Here is the larger pic of the same.

Ranjini ji
You are right. It is indeed Convolvulaceae.
