070311-PR- For ID help-Chennai.: Please help me id this shrub growing in a park in Chennai.

Could be one of the Pachystachys species.

Thank-you .., it is Pachystachys spicata also called P. coccinea.
 It was in the park you took us around, Nageswara Rao Park.
 You will be unhappy to hear that they have drastically chopped the branches of the Cocoloba uvifera. It has been almost covered by a Prosopis juliflora.
The Clusia rosea is blooming now. I'll post the pics separately.

Pachystachys* *spicata*  & *Pachystachys* *coccinea*  are two different species as per The Plant List:
