Here are my pics of the Potato Tree seen on a street in Bangalore.
Unfortunately this tree is not seen in Chennai. Is the climate not conducive to its flowering here, I wonder.
Cheers,
  Padmini Raghavan.

Padmini ji
Potato tree is not S. macrophyllum (a very confused name now considered as synonym of S. albidum)

This one should be S. wrightii, uploaded few days earlier by Pankaj ji.

I am feeling the heat, so it is time to pass the buck!
My source is Mr. Inghalikar's Trees Of Pune, page 60.
Shrikanth-ji, you are in the hot seat now.
 
With regards,
Padmini Raghavan.

Don't worry Padmini ji. We (my self and Shrikant ji) won't fight over this. We will manage to sort it out.

Attn: Dr. Padmini,
I have seen this tree in Chennai in T. Nagar (one of the roads in
between Pondy bazaar and GN Chetty road : in a residential house). It
does not flower profusely as in Mysore or Bangalore.
Earlier I have posted the pictures of this tree from Mysore city.
Please see the link. This tree flowers throughout the year. Now is
the flush season. I have a few trees nearby my house in Mysore.

Dear Padirag ji,
I have seen this tree flowering in Yercaud. I have yet to spot it in Chennai. Will be looking out for it.
Regards,
Mohan
