thank you so much, … very cooperative attitude, i like that, so this plants flowers almost from get go, as soon as it emerges from the ground
must have a short life  or multiple life cycles in the warm climate before winter sets in. is that so? any publication(s)?

Thanks … yes it has short life cycle of only a couple of month during late monsoon season.
You can find one publication already mentioned in the efloraofindia Hoppea dichotoma page.

Flowering time of Hoppea dichotoma is September to March.
While of H.fastigiata is July- March.
