Two days ago I saw these wild flowers on a vine which had crept up my Curry Leaf tree. The beautiful tiny white flowers resemble the flowers of the Tabernamontana. The creeper exudes 'milk' when a twig is plucked. The flowers have no scent.
This year, because of the failed monsoon and the ensuing water crunch, many parts of the garden failed to get any water. This creeper, which I think is a native , must have had no competition from exotic plants, and has quietly, but determinedly crept up my Curry Leaf tree.
All native plants have medicinal uses in Ayurveda, but I could not find anyone to identify the plant..
Can you identify it?
I am a natural gardener living in South India.The exuberant tropical garden that has grown around me is completely organic and critter- friendly.Different frogs, birds, butterflies and other winged creatures live in my garden or visit it, including some of the creeping kind. All are welcome except the four legged kind. I love to travel and to learn new things.
