The Indian Oak is blooming in Chennai now, though not as profusely as last year.

Great collection Padmini ji
I suppose this is a coastal tree so difficult to grow in other areas.
As far as my knowledge goes there is one tree in Pune(Patwardhan baug ..yet not observed by me!) The flowers bloom only during night and wilt in the morning.
Shrikant ji had written about it in Pune Times  few days back. It will be depicted in his forthcoming book about Trees of Pune which I am sure will be very useful to everybody.
