Hi Prasanna, Dr.Vijayasankar and Dr. Maheswara,
Thanks for the id.
It is Alstonia macrophylla seen in Nageswara rao Park.
It must have been pointed out to us by you , Dr. M, but there were so many specimens that were new to me that it must have escaped my attention.
Btw, the Alstonia scholaris at the Agri-hort garden has not bloomed tho I have been watching it the past year or so.
The Pseudobombax ellipticum had just ONE fantastic pink flower about 5-6 inches wide at the top of a bare tree, last week. It was a stunning sight (unfortunately not to be photographed.)
Thanks and regards,
