Dear

Flora Indica informs -
Premna latifolia Roxb. : - bark ash-coloured / corymbs axillary and terminal, compound / wood is white, used for various economical purpose / leaves have pretty strong agreeable smell and used in curry. But, FBI informs leaves have 7 pairs of nerves.

Premna longifolia Roxb. : distrib. Bengal / bark ash to greenish brown / petiole 2 to 3 inches / corymbs terminal, large / smell agreeable. Nerves 6 pairs (FBI)

Premna integrifolia L. : it is connected with with several citations / sometimes thorny / upper half of leaf margin sometimes bears teeth / nerves 4 to 5 pair / leaves edible (KEW). Flora Indica informs (P. serratifolia) "the whole plant has a heavy unpleasant smell".

I think your plant is one of the above three.

Thanks n regards

Garg Sir,

The options in my mail, referred here, was for the post at https://groups.google.com/d/msg/indiantreepix/TyjkObnAlgA/D8OWVBi6IZoJ. I hope this post and the one linked above are same.

Out of the three species I gave a short account on I would say that this tree is Premna serratifolia L.

Thanks you and regards

Without calyx character it is hard to decide, I think it is Premna integrifolia L.

Thank you
