Atimuktaka (अतिमुक्तक) is a synonym of Mādhavī (“spring-flowers”) and identified with Hiptage madablota Gaertn, as mentioned in verse 3.34 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] In groves in which the hot-rayed one is darkened by cloud-grazing huge Sal trees and Palmyra palms, (and which are) profuse in bunches of grapes clinging to spring-flowers [viz., mādhavī] in a rest-house in which (are found) plenty of cloths besprinkled with fragrant cold water, [...]”.

Note: mādhavī-śliṣṭa (“clinging to spring-flowers”) has been separated from, and interchanged with, drākṣāstabakaśālin (“profuse in bunches of grapes”), and has been rendered more freely by ’khri-śiṅ daṅ ldan (“endowed with creepers”). The term mādhavī (from mādhava) (“spring-flower”) denotes a species of creepers alternatively called atimuktaka and generally identified as Hiptage madablota Gaertn.—For daṅ ldan CD read ldan daṅ, which does not make sense here.
