Combretum indicum, also known as the Rangoon creeper. The flowers change in colour with age and it is thought that this is a strategy to gather more pollinators. The flower is initially white and opens at dusk. This attracts hawkmoths with long tongues for pollination. On the second day it turns pink and on the third it turns red attracting day flying bees and birds. The flower also changes from a horizontal orientation to a drooping pose
The seeds of  madhumatti contain the chemical quisqualic acid, which is an agonist for the AMPA receptor, a kind of glutamate receptor in the brain. The chemical is linked to excitotoxicity . The seeds have been used for treating roundworm and pinworm. It is toxic to the parasite and kills it in the digestive tract.
