Dear all,
First I thought of this plant to be a Tabermontana sp. but leaves looks different. Please help to ID this shrub. 
I am sorry that I have no details of this particular plant as this is taken by my friend at a private home garden in Chennai on 20 May 2011.

Please wait for comments.

Clerodendrum chinense. This is a very very common ornamental plant in
Mysore city. Local name here is ' Madras mallige".

Common in gardens in Kerala too. This has a funny name in Malayalam. I
have heard people referring to it as 'Ottor Mohini' as well as 'Ottor
Mulla'. I can't decipher what the first part stands for and had always
wondered what it could mean!

'Mulla' means jasmine in Malayalam. 'Mohini' is the one who
enchants.

Sandhya

Perhaps the easiest difference between the two species

Leaves shining and glabrous on both surfaces....................................Morinda citrifolia
Leaves tomentose on both surfaces..................................................Morinda coreia

In light of this above plant should be M. coreia

Dear Swamy ji, a small correction...it is "Mysore malligai" மைசூர் மல்லிகை (not mallige, which is a Kannada phonetics)
