||On 13/2/08 fromThallasherry and Kannur in North Kerala as per Naveein- people are concerned that this flower which plays an important role in the 'Vishu" celebrations (which is the Malayalam New Year), may not be available in April. It's called the Kani Poo in Tamil and Malayalam as it flowers only in April, and exactly during the Vishu festival, when this flower is considered to be a "must" in the decoration as per Ravi. I have seen it flower from April to June in Kolkata. On 08/04/2006 at Mysore as per Raghu. Flowering in the JVPD Scheme/Andheri, Mumbai- 31/3/08- Tejal ji. April first fortnight flowering in Pune- Satish ji. Saw the first blossoms of the amaltas last evening (16/4/08) in Delhi- Rita ji. Saw first flowers on 17/4/08 in Kolkata- J.M.Garg. In full boom in & around Delhi on 8/5/08.
||Trees of Delhi states that flowers in late April & peaking by mid May. Beautiful Trees & Shrubs of Calcutta by Sh. R.K. Chakraverty & S.K.Jain states that it flowering starts in late spring (April-May) and continues upto mid summer (June).
