ඇටඹුරු[Etamburu] (Fagraea ceilanica)

Epiphytic or terrestrial shrub or small tree occurs in and along both primary and secondary forest edges from sea level to about 1500 m a.s.l. or more.


  1. I saw a plant similar to this in Hakgala strict nature reserve. Is this plant grows in Hakhala area? Where was this photographs taken?

  2. It has been reported from some areas of Nuwaraeliya district such as Ramboda, Hamguranketha, Pundaluoya etc. So there is a possibility of growing it in Hakgala as well. I photographed this at Rajagala mountain in the Ampara district.
