Lamiaceae & Verbenaceae Week: Verbenaceae-Citharexylum spinosum: Spiny Fiddlewood Tree - Citharexylum spinosum Ulsoor Lake Bangalore

Wonderful... now I am sure what my unknown neighbor tree is... photographed last month but did know where to begin to ID it... my dad used to call it Manjari... but had no idea about its botanical ID ......
now I read all that I could lay my hands on including  the wiki and A P Benthall's Trees of Calcutta, a 1946 book...!!! and lo and behold... its listed and described in detail... at the end of the day I' ll return from class and upload my pics...
Possibly this is Species: Citharexylum spinosum 
Family: Verbenaceae
Photographed in June 2011
Site: Residential suburb, South Kolkata
Tree ID: Possibly Citharexylum spinosum
My ID is based on reading up following posting recently by ... from Bangalore See thread Similar pictures at url : http://groups.google.com/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/ec0...
These photographs are taken from my balcony about 70 feet away.. with a zoom lens on a sony prosumer camera, handheld.. Close up of the flowers is not available YET…. In the first picture the background id provided by a Peltoforum, leaves turning dark, and copper pods are getting bigger. The foreground tree is a mangifera. The middle tree is the one in question…. It is about 20 feet tall, with light grey to dark bark, no prominent furrows etc... Leaves are elliptic-oblong, about 5-7 inches long, plain (non serrated ) margins. All three trees are about 25 to 30 years old… I SHALL GREATLY APPRECIATE  INPUTS FROM THE EXPERTS…

Yes, indeed it is Citharexylum spinosum. We call it 'Parijatam' in  Malayalam. Very fragrant flowers. I have it in my garden. Attracts a lot of butterflies and bees. Easy to propagate from cuttings.

Oh this seems to be different than the more common one Citharexylum spinosum syn. Citharexylum quadrangulare.
Please note the correct genus name.
Family : Verbenaceae
Checked again after writing the text. Citharexylum subserratum is also a synonym of C.spinosum

How does one tell the difference between this one and Citharexylum spinosum ?
according to wiki they are synonyms.

Wiki says this is a flowering plant from US. Don't know why they imported it!
thank you but the inflorescence in your pic looks different from those I see every day: efi thread
I am not sure ... slight difference? do not know...
Tried more than an hour and a half to understand the differences in the between the inflorescence in my images and that of by ... - https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!topic/indiantreepix/7A_UpJYNQJ8.
But failed to find any between efi thread (mine) and efi thread (...).
However, pasting some links for the sake of keeping records, or in other words for the sake of time and money spent ! -

The small white flowers have a nice fragrance. Sorry- my camera/ photographic skills did not allow me to get a nice focused picture of the flower itself.

Citharexylum qudrangulare.
Verbenaceae

Thank you ...! I noticed a similarity to Citharexylum spinosum whose images I saw at http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Fiddlewood.html
How does one differentiate between spinosum and qudrangulare?
They are same.

Citharexylum sp. (?) for Id: Please identify this shrub or a small tree appeared to be Citharexylum of the family Verbenaceae, growing in the garden of Saudi Arabia
Citharexylum qudrangulare
Looks like Buddleja sp. (Family: Buddlejaceae).
sorry this is not Buddleja sp.
please look carefully stame structure and leaf shape and also flower spike or inflorescence. 
... I agree with ...
Citharexylum spinosum L. is the accepted name of Citharexylum quadrangulare Jacq.
And this plant grows straightly attaining a height of at least 10 meters. The flowers, when bloom attract many insects and sunbirds.
In the areas of Uttara Kannada district of Karnataka, this is called "kol sampge" and is used as a potential plant in Apiculture.
Thank you for all the posts. Finally I concluded it to be C. spinosum as suggestedd by ..., but shows slight variations.
