In our young days we read an essay by Hazari Prasad Dwivedi in which he lamented the disappearance of the red orange flowers of ashok and the present non- descript flowers of Ashok (longifolia). Doyen as he was of literature, he was not aware that they are two different trees: seeta ashok and polyalthia longifolia.
