But as per my observation goes..  Ardisea  petals are pink... and often purple tinged..
But the present plant is having white petals...
 May be an albino..?

“But as per my observation goes..  Ardisea  petals are pink... and often purple tinged..

But the present plant is having white petals...
May be an albino..?” from Parjanya ji.
 
Doubts has been raised about it being Ardisea solanacea in thread: http://groups.google.co.in/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/c37af487269b98cc#

"Dinesh ji's   plant leaves are not distinctly crenate but neither are they
very distinctly entire.  So it is definately not A. solanacea but it  is
doubtful whether it can be A. parviflora
as you have mentioned. Also quoting
the entire defination from Dr. Almeida's flora for A. parviflora if it is of
any help:  " A small erect, branched shrub. Leaves coriaceous, 8-11 by 2.5 -
4 cm, obovate, acute, distinctly crenate, pellucido- puncate, base cuneate;
petioles 6 mm long. Flowers small, 8-12 cm across, in simple pedunculate
axillary or terminal umbels about half as long as the leaves. Corolla small,
white, not pink nor spotted. Fruit size of a pea, globose, not striate, red
when ripe. "
regards,
Rashida. "

Dear all,

This is not Ardisia solanacea for sure. So many posts have already
been happened on Ardisia solanacea with proper validation.
Please provide the following information on this post;

Whether the calyx lobes small (bigger than A solnaceae that is
provided in the previous post) ?
Whether the leaves are obscurely crenulate?
Are the nerves visible?
Is there any gland dots on the leaves?
Are flowers light pink when open?
Do the garden people have any idea where they got it from?


Regards
Giby

Dear Giby, will not be able to answer your queries very well ... the agony is ... the plant is no longer in the garden ... the thought never occurred to me, that a small shrub may be dislodged / removed to make way as part of garden's routine maintenance.

Though eager to know the ID, will not stress much on my request ... because unfortunately cannot recollect much about this plant; photos too are simply two.

By now having seen quite a few A. solanacea posts, this plant seems to be getting far away from it.

Back of my mind, am sure somebody will crack the ID.



Regards.
