Mussaenda Species seen in a garden in Mumbai.
I am getting confused between M philippica and M erythrophylla, since search is showing both for pink flowers.
A cultivated, garden plant.

The two species are quite distinct in corolla, it being yellow in M. philippica and white to creamy white with red centre in M. erythrophylla
Your plant appears to be Mussaenda philippica, as per images and details herein.

Garg Ji,
Thanks for the id.
Mussaenda philippica 'Queen Sirikit' seems to have lighter pink sepals with a dark edge.
Kindly check.
Regards,
Aarti
