Hibiscus platanifolius, a straggling shrub with beautiful flowers. Flower picture from Javvadhu hills, Tiruvannamalai dt. (TN), fruit pic from Talakona forest (AP). The leaves just like that of a Platanus, so the specific epithet.

Thanks Mani ji, I think I have earlier also uploaded this. It is a potential ornamental plant but only problem is that the fruits have kind of stinging hairs. Hope some improved variety will come in the future.
