Flowering now in Kolkata. All pictures taken on 10/2/07 in Kolkata. It has very large leaves which are also quite variable in shape & size. Here is one link with flowers: http://bio.fiu.edu/trees/sp_pages/Pterospermum_acerifolium.html
Trees of Delhi- Flowers appear in March, with some trees still in flower at the end of April. Beautiful Trees & Shrubs of Calcutta- Flowers in early spring (Feb.- March) & continues up to early summer (Feb.- April)


Thanks for the pictures. Here in Florida (USA), I haven’t seen any with rounded leaves, only ones with lobed leaves. Since it does not seed in the US, I think most here are cutting-grown from a few lobed clones.

Pterospermum for ID : Lalbagh,Bangalore : 150712 : AK-1:  A small tree with dried flowers and fruit pods.

Pictures taken at Lalbagh, Bangalore on 15/4/12.


Thank you for confirming this id..
I know Pterospermum acerifolium in Jijamata Udyan, but these dried flowers looked little smaller in size.
So thought of confirming.

PTEROSPERMUM ACERIFOLIUM : ANT’S ATTACK:   There are few Pterospermum acerifolium trees at this place. I observed that large black ants eat buds and tender leaves of this tree. I saw very few flowers of this species at this place because of this phenomenon. Can anybody tell me why the ants are attracted to the buds of this tree species ?

This is a medium to big tree found in rural area. I think the tree can self propagate, for i saw some of them growing nearby area. The leaves, flowers and fruits are proportionately big.

This is from Singur and a person who collects flowers each year says flowers are used medicinally. Earlier one of my upload was identified by …


nice

yes it has antidiabetic (hypoglycemic activity) in flowers and anti diabetic (hypoglycemic) and anti-inflammatory activity in the leaves mainly.

But it makes me nervous about the mounded dried flowers at the base of the tree, if that’s how they collect the flowers, God save the poor patient.  looks like how the street sweepers collect the fallen leaves and flowers in my neighborhood for the garbage trucks.

Thank you Didi, and yes the person was picking up both the dried and newly dropped flowers.

Nice photographs … Here are more (3), especially fruits to complete the series.


 

Nice pictures …. The photos are beautifully captured. I too have a few pictures (3) of the same and an additional information. there is another tree which according to my information is named Pterospermum xylocarpum. it is an exact copy of Pterospermum acerifolium except the size of everything. in first look any one can think of it as a malnourished P. acerifolium only. however it is a different species. i dont know the main differences between the two but i was lucky enough to encounter both in my area (Chandigarh).


I wonder whether the last picture belongs to the same species. The leaves looks different


As you have correctly identified, the 3rd picture is Pterospermum xylocarpum. You can find the differences in the bracteoles, leaves as well as fruits. In this species the fruits have 5 sharp ridges/angles and the tip is pointed. Whereas, in the fruits of P. acerifolium the ridges as well as the tip are blunt, in addition to various other differences. 


I’m adding my pic (1) of Pterospermum acerifolium in Chennai..
However I have not been able to see any seeds. Does anyone have pics of the seeds?


your plant doesn’t look like P. acerifolium. It may be Pterospermum diversifolium. http://toptropicals.com/catalog/uid/pterospermum_diversifolium.htm
In P. acerifolium the leaves are broader and prominently peltate. Pl see the link


I think this plant is Pterospermum diversifolium and shows no morphology similar to P acerifolium. P acerifolium has a peltate orbicular leaf.


This is a typical case where the leaf/flower description is critical.
1. P. acerifolium has 25 cm long peltate leaves and 15 cm long flowers.
2. P. canescens has 10 cm long rounded leaves with cream coloured tomentum beneath and 5 cm long flowers,
3. P. xylocarpum has 20 cm long cordate leaves and 5 cm long flowers.

… third plant and … plant will fit in latter 2 depending upon leaves.


Pterospermum acerifolium do well in Delhi. For BRT project 30000 grown up trees have become Shaid. Well grown Pterospermum trees, on Lodi Road and Lajpat Nagar Crossing, were also got copped off mercilessly.


Many thanks for the correction. The flower has a lovely scent. Does that tally with the proper id?

re:muchakunda : this flower has been named ‘muchakunda’. can someone confirm?


They are the flowers of Maple Twist [Pterospermum acerofolium] locally called Kanak Champa or Muchkunda.


i feel it is correct, but other possibility is kanakchampa. what is the size of flower/


kanakchampa and muchkund are two dfferent trees. muchkund flowers are smaller while kanakchampa larger. kanakchmpa has yellow colour.
scientific names i will inform


As you must be aware, sometimes the same common name is used for many trees & plants. In that way,
you may be right if some other plant/ tree has the same name.
As per the books like Trees of Delhi & Beautiful Trees & Shrubs of Kolkata, both Kanak Champa & Muchkund, are common names for the posted flower, in Hindi & Bengali.


what you say i accept, but related to the posted flower even me and my friend were also of the same opinion as it is the same tree . but latter when we refered the books we found that they r two different , as i receive the mail of my friend i will send you both the names.
i am little poor in remembering scientific name.
and though entire college library is at my disposal i cannot find time to go through books, as my office work ends at 9pm.
so waiting for reply from my friend


yes …
Muchkund is Pterospermum suberifolium
kanakchampa is Pterospermum aserifolium
family Sterculiaceae


As per Flora of Maharashtra state Dicotyledons Vol 1(BSI) Family:Sterculiaceae
Pterospermum acerifolium: Flower size 12-15 cm across Fls.Frts.:Dec.-Jun
Names:‘Kanak champa’, ‘Karnihar’, ‘Karnikar’, ‘Muchkund’ (Muchkund in Marathi);

Pterospermum xylocarpum : Flower size is 5 cm across Fls.Frts.:Dec-Feb.
Syn. Pterospermum suberifolium. Pterospermum heyneaum. No local name mentioned.

Local names are used for a wide range of spectrum of flowers which even range across the families so no point in discussing them to a large extent. Even the names are different according to region and language.That is the reason botanical nomenclature is important.Though one must know the local name in his or her region.


I think … also has a point as Pterospermum suberifolium is also called Muchkund in Sanskrit as per the following links:
http://chennaionline.com/columns/chennaitrees/2004/trees36.asp
but saying “kanakchampa and muchkund are two dfferent trees” may not be appropriate with lots of common names being widely used for more than one tree.


 
VALMIKI : OBSERVER OF NATURE: 1 correct image as above.
In Ramayan of Valmiki MUCHKUNDA has been metioned. Scientifically the tree is Pterospermum acerifolium. In some places it is known as Kanak-champa. I saw the tree first at Pachmarhi ( M P ). Attaching an image of a flowering branch of the tree.

CHIRABILVA has been mentioned by Valmiki in his Ramayan. Scientifically the tree is known as Holoptelea integrifolia. It is known as PAPRI or CHILBIL in Hindi. First time I saw this tree in Lucknow. I saw it again at Kanpur. Attaching an image of the tree.

Pterocarpus acerifolium: I am attaching a few pics of Pterocarpus acerifolium which I took at the Amrita University campus near Coimbatore last month in July. Searching the efloraofindia group, there does not seem to be any previous mention of this species.


There seems to be a mistake. It should be Pterospermum acerofolium [Kanak Champa, Muchkund]. Will send my photographs of this later. 


My photographs of Pterospermum acerofolium


I too think that this is Pterospermum acerifolium of Sterculiaceae family. Not Pterocarpus, for sure.


Pterospermum acerifolium  yes kanakchampa


Yes,  Kanakchampa…  Pterospermum acerifolium

used to be a popular street tree in Calcutta… until very cheap Gulmohar  nursery stock took over (which used to sell for as low as ONE  indian rupee per 3 foot nursery stock, if one wanted  it for street planting) …!!! Flowers from Mature trees fill the air with sweet smell for a couple of weeks….

Muchakunda in Bengali and Hindi refers to Pterospermum suberifolim…  (not P. acerifolium …which is Kanak champa in most north indian vernaculars)…

This is what I was trying to explain … in one of his Valmiki thread, that Muchkund and Kanakchapa are different. But as I don’t remember the Sc. Name and no one else objected I kept quite.
Kanakchapa has golden colour thick sepals while Muchkund has white ones. Flowers of Kanakchampa are smaller while of Muchkund larger.


Fair enough ! Am not good at local names, but Muchkund was the name on the sapling bought fom a Botanical garden in Pune. Also Muchkund is the name used by .. in his second volume of ‘More Flowers of the Sayadris’.


Neither am I , I look up several classical texts and books…

No problem. matter of fact ever since I started studying Ayurvedic medicine / herbs and learning binomial names and the reconciling them with the traditional and vernacular Indian names has been difficult… if not mind-boggling… often  there is a lot of duplication with opposite meaning sometimes…   to confuse the issue … Kalidas named something different from the person who wrote Kadambari…or Ramayana and those concerned with
Mahabharata  and those who wrote Shushrut and Charak texts originally all those thousands of years ago…
AND then multiply it with the tribal names… when you begin to study some ethnobotany….
Phew!!!  That’s why a spread sheet with binomial and vernacular names gets soooooo  unweildy…

yes you are right… about the colors…and the previous point, I seem to have missed the discussion…
and
No, you have the size of the flower mixed up…
the P. suberifolium flower is about 1.5 to 2.0 inches long, and its fruit/capsule id 2 to 3 inches long…
while…. P. acerifolium flower is about 5 inches long , the capsule is 5-6 inches long…
that’s a quick way to differentiate…
We have several p. acerifolium trees in the streets of my neighbourhood and the Dhaukira lakes…
and have to go to the zoo to find the P. suberifolium
next spring I will go deligently and take pictures of both …  would be interesting…

In Mumbai one of it is in Jijamata Udyan. Just on the left where drinking water taps are.
The other is planted on the road side from Kanjurmarg till a little further, on Eastern express highway on right when we move from Thane to Mumbai. Previously even I was under impression that both of them are only one plant. But once in VJTI in annual flower show I could see both seperate plants.
If not mistaken the size and shape of leaves too differ.

Pterospermum for ID : 060811 : AK-1:  Taken at Jijamata Udya, Mumbai on 15/4/11.
After reading the discussion about the two diff species, I am posting these.
Is it Muchkund or Kanak Champa?


From the size and shape of the leaves & the size of the flower would think this is Pterospermum acerifolium [Kanak Champa, Muchkund] rather than Pterospermum xylocarpum [syn. P.suberifolium, Muchkund].

Can you tell me if this is Anjeer tree?

No …, This is neither “Anjeer” nor any other Ficus..
Looks like Pterospermum acerifolium…!!


Thanks for the response.
We’ve the Karnikara (Pterospermum acerifolim) trees in our society as well, but it’s new and young leaves are completely different.
It’s leaves don’t have these lobes at all, while all the leaves of the tree in the picture have penta-lobes mostly.
Kindly suggest folks.


I agree with …


  

Saw this small young tree on 17/3/08 at Jayanti, Duars, West Bengal. Leaves appear like that of Kanak Champa (Pterospermum acerifolium). Is there any other tree with similar leaves?

I’d plz

Radhika, it is sapling of pterospermum acerifolium... kanak champa in bengali, and hindi.

if its nursery, its a neglected one. tires thrown in rocky unkempt part of the grounds. i see a section of terra cotta pot in background and green screens, so there is human activity there. can you tell us whats the story here? might be interesting


At first I would like to thanks you for identifying it…

Hemvati Nandan Bahuguna Garhwal University Srinagar Uttarakhand (A Central University) contains it’s own horicultural and forest research council.
Here many different species of trees can be seen. The seedling of Kanak Champa was outside the Forest Research council.. it was not planted that’s why no terracotta pot was used… I think it’s naturally regenerated..


good to know the circumstances of its existence


ID by … is correct. Dinner plate tree, native tree of India / Burma
