Bangalore City blooms every winter, with colorful flowers adorning the trees just at the time they shed their leaves. Jacaranda, Tabebuia, Gulmohar, African Tulip and Copper Red trees paint the town in bright colors. But some names I do not know, and have often spent long times searching for them on the internet. I stumbled on a page in Karthik’s Journal today, listing details of Bangalore’s flowering trees along with images.
For those who would want to know more information about these trees, I have tried to put together some information and pictures for 26 species that are often seen.
For those who do not know, Karthik is one of the best known naturalists in Bangalore. He once worked with World Wildlife Fund for Nature, and is currently with Jungle Lodges and Resorts. See his bio on his website.
