Yes Common in Western ghats of Maharashtra too.
Yes sir. On this trip, I accompanied ... He too was surprised that I got excited when I saw this short tree flowering. He told me that it is quite commonly found in the regions he has explored in Maharashtra.

Is Gnidia glauca suitable to be grown near water bodies and flowing streams?
As far as I know it is not a typical riparian element. It is usually found along slopes and forest borders. But it is not wrong planting few plants in the vicinity of water bodies I guess.
if i remember correctly it also called fish poison plant
please research it well before planting near water bodies
