Rubiaceae Week: Hamelia patens from Panipat: (10 pictures) Hamelia patens Jacq. from Panipat, shot in October 2011, very common ornamental..
Awesome close ups of the flowers. Though I am seeing this plant almost everyday during my evening walks, I have not seen the fruits, perhaps I would have overlooked. Thanks for sharing the photograph of the fruits as well.
