Hi,
 
The reference you have mentioned is from 'Vrukshagaan' by Dr.Sharadini Dahanukar.
She mentions two more names - 'Gagan Jai' & 'Akash Nim"

The long white needle like fragrant flowers are of Indian Cork tree. The wood of the tree bark is soft and used in making corks (of lower quality),
 
Thanks!

Dear friends,

Why it is called a cork tree? anything to do with cork?
