The Ashoka Tree (Saraca indica), not to be confused with Polyalthia longifolia, which also sometimes goes by the common name, Ashoka Tree. While they are both indigenous to India, that’s where all similarities end. Saraca indica has beautiful orangey yellow blossoms during this time of the year in South Florida. The tree has a nice compact shape, attaining a height of 15-20′ tall. Also, this time of year new leaves emerge as papery thin, drooping, and reddish pink in color, before thickening and turning dark green.
Richard Lyons Nursery currently has this tree in stock.
