Dear Friends
 
On Jan 2, 2011 I posted a pic of a tree , seeng ID- the Title was 'For Identifica​tion_02012​011_DS_SN'
I got sme responses, one from Nidhan ji - suggesting Paras Pepal or Thespesia populnea. Since at that time no flowers were there, I thought I will keep watch for the flower.
Now the tree flowers - the pic of the same tree is attached.
Please confirm the Id.
Another suggestion was  Dombeya natalensis from Alok ji.
 
Thanks
Dalia

Yes this appears to be Paras Pepal / Thespesia populnea. In picture
italso looks like Hibiscus tiliaceus. Some more detais will help.

Should not be confused with thespesia populnea. Although it has similar leaves, but the flowers are totally different, solitary axillary, with only 3 epicalyx , calyx cupular bell-like with almost truncate limb.

Here the flowers are borne on a peduncle, epicalyx segments are longer and 7-10 in number, and calyx not cupular. It is Hibiscus tiliaceus.
