Cordia subcordata.   Big tree

– It looks to me a species of Cordia with very smooth bark


– The tree is not Gmelina sps.  I am sure. The photographs were taken in the Botany department garden premises. There is a board indicating the name as Cordia subcordata. However, I will send photographs of the flowers when the tree blooms for confirmation..
