One interesting fact for those who are not aware.
THE TREE HAS NO PETALS. WHAT WE SEE HERE ARE BEAUTIFULLY COLOURED SEPALS.

Dear friends,
Thanking Gurcharan ji for bringing up Saraca asoca and Saraca indica at https://groups.google.com/forum/?hl=en#!topic/indiantreepix/KgjiUoJP2Zw
Earlier Garg ji too had queried to know which among these is our native ... at https://groups.google.com/forum/?hl=en#!topic/indiantreepix/eIGV_ch2MSA
FOI too has Saraca asoca ... http://www.flowersofindia.in/catalog/slides/Sita%20Ashok.html


Thus realizing my mistake in this post.
Please read the ID of the plants posted as:
Saraca asoca (Roxb.) W. J. de Wilde, Blumea 15:393. 1968
Synonyms: Jonesia asoca Roxb.; Saraca indica auct. (non L.); Baker in Fl. Brit. Ind. 2: 271, 1878


Will correct my notes at my flickr photostream at the earliest.


Regards.
Dinesh
