Subject: [Indiantreepix] Re: Blooming Period of Jacaranda

Hi, Vinaya ji,
Data available so far:
Flowering (13/2/08) at Mayani near Satara as per Rama ji- It appears to be too early & even in Pune I have seen an occasional Jacaranda (though most are not) in full bloom (13/2/08)- Satish ji.  Jacaranda trees are in bloom (13/2/08) in Banglore- Vidya ji. Flowering seen in May over the years in Himachal- J.M.Garg. Blooming now (2/3/08) in Bannerghatta National Park near Banglore- Vinaya. 
Books references:
Trees of Delhi- flowers with the new leaves, early April to mid May: occasional short flushes in the rains. Beautiful Trees & Shrubs of Calcutta- flowering occurs from late spring to early summer (April-May).
I am looking for Mumbai & Banglore references, so that we can really feel the impact, if any. May anybody quote from the refrences of Mumbai & Banglore (South India) etc.

I thought blooming period of these were in December (as observed in previous years). Is this wrong ?

Also Tabebuia have bloomed on Palace Road (bangalore)
 (may be last week before flowers go done) .

Hi, everybody,
Can someone take up compilation of data for Herbs/ Shrubs posted on Indiantreepix, on the lines I am doing for trees? It will certainly be a very useful work.

Hi, Swamy ji,
Good pictures, but as per Group guidelines each attachment should not be more than 150 KB. Your attachments are of a bigger size. You have to re-size your pictures in future postings to max. 800 pixel by 600 pixel with quality settings of say 5 to 10, so that you get the desirable size upto 150 Kb.
