 Dear Dineshji
Only this Clerodendron was know from childhood as called Kadu Koynel or menda. Is it true that the medicine for Malaria is extracted from it? This was also an example of typical cyme?
Thanks for showing all beautiful Clerodendrons. Though flowers /plants were seen never related them to Kadu Koynel.
HaHA!

Madhuri ji ... not sure of the medicinal aspect of this plant .
Got this name कडू कोयनेल kadu koyanel from our friend Ajinkya (Gadave) via a post in the group at https://groups.google.com/d/topic/indiantreepix/mIch8wrHfk0/discussion
Hopefully he will throw some light.

Regards.
