  5. Wrightia antidysenterica, the coral swirl, is a flowering plant in the genus Wrightia. Wrightia antidysenterica is sometimes confused with the species Holarrhena pubescens due to a second, taxonomically invalid publication of the name Holarrhena pubescens. It's been long known in Indian Ayurvedic tradition, and is called " kuṭaja " in Sanskrit. You may try this Buy Fancy Bottles Online
