Frankly speaking I am not very much sure about the
flowers. Actually I just noted down those which I
remember reading in xadhukothas and seeing at our
guwahati home garden.
Akaxigonga as far as I remember is a ground plant very
much like top of pinaple but around 1 to 2 m high from
ground. And the reddish purpllish sweet smelling
flower comes out from the centre on a long support
I think Beena and madhobilota are same-creeper with
small light reddish flower.
Kothal-sompa and I remember one more konok-sompa-these
are big trees with yellow very sweet smelling flower.
Gulonsi I think is frangipani-whitish yellowish
I am not sure about others.
There is one more I remember-Hasna hana which blooms
and spreads its fragnance late at night.
May be somebody from assam can throw some light.
Thanks and best wishes with the website venture.
