Pankaj jiIf you look at two photographs against Thunbergia grandiflora at Flowers of India website, there is one with white flowers by Aarti Khale. This is Thunbergia grandiflora (the flowers can be blue also in this species), note deeply cordate leaves almost as broad as long. The second photograph is with blue flowers. This one is taken by Dinesh Valke, and belongs to T. laurifolia. Note that leaves are much less wider as compared to lenth, and not cordate at base. You may also notice that veins all arise from base in white flowered plant, and they are somewhat pinnate in blue flowered plant, only two side vins from near the base, others arising higher up.You may also look at photographs of two species uploaded by me separately, two to three days back.
