Description:

The Saraca asoca is a beautifully foliaged, rain-forest tree. This handsome, small, erect tree, has deep green leaves growing in dense clusters. The young leaflets come out in drooping branches, changing colours from grayish white to pinkish, and remain folded. Its flowering season is around February to April. And the tree is presently covered with vibrant orange, slightly fragrant flowers which are borne in roundish inflorescence on the branches and stems. Bright orange-yellow in colour, they turn red before wilting. The Ashoka tree is a medicinal plant. It is both sacred and culturally important in India.
