In April I went to Himachal. I saw these trees in full bloom. Can anyone give me an ID of these. Also if you know of a common name then it is easier to search for it in the local nurseries. It helps, as most of the gardeners are not aware of the scientific names.

 This is a Jacaranda species, most likely J. mimosifolia.
