A STOMPer says that the plant, which STOMPer Jeffrey claimed had not borne flowers for the past 18 years, is actually a flowering plant that blossoms fortnightly.
This was in response to STOMPer Jeffrey's earlier posting, where he expressed surprise over seeing small white flowers on this plant.
The STOMPer says:
"I am surprised that Jeffrey has not seen the flowers of this plant for 18 years.
"The plant near my home was planted on a school's fence and it blooms every other week.
"It is called the Baphia Nitida which is a native plant of Africa.
"The flowers are bisexual, faintly fragrant and quite inconspicuous.
"The 5 sepals are white, modified into a larger rounded standard which has a splash of yellow just above the stalk."

It looks like my initial suspicions about the identity of this plant were correct.
