Is there white resin coming out from the leaves when breaking ? If yes
then it could be Ficus. otherwise may not.
Thanks for the new plant.

Dear All,
This plant I brought from a nursery in Jabalpur.
Main aim to bring it was to get a plant that provide flowers throughout the year. They called it Butterfly Bush.
May I request to help in ID please.
Thanks.
