Dear Friends,
This is a large shrub around 2 to 3 m looking similar to typical Tagar.
 Flowers were fragrant with pleasant and soothing smell.
I had seen this in wild near a beach close to Port Blair (Andaman & Nicobar). Looks like some Tabernaemontana sp.

Date/Time: 21-12-2010 / 06:45AM
Location: Near Port Blair, Andaman
Habitat: Wild
Plant Habit: Shrub

regards
Prashant
