    Alstonia scholaris
    Indian Devil Tree

    Glossy, leathery green leaves crowd the gray-brown, milky sap filled branches of this tropical evergreen native to India, Southeast Asia, and China. From October to November a fine fragrance emanates from small, white funnel-shaped flowers that emerge in clusters, painting the air thickly with its bouquet. Springtime announces the arrival of cotton seedlings that dance and twirl in the bright sky. Alstonia scholaris is fast growing in it's native habitat and has been used in the maufacturing of pencils, coffins and corks.
