Characterized by glossy, lance-shaped leaves and fragrant white flowers, the Alstonia Scholaris is a botanical treasure that can transform any space into a haven of tranquility.

About: Originating from the Indian subcontinent, the Alstonia Scholaris belongs to the Apocynaceae family. Revered for its cultural significance and traditional uses, this tree has found its way into gardens, landscapes, and even traditional medicine practices. With a moderate growth rate, it reaches a height of 50 to 80 feet when mature, creating an impressive canopy.

The plant is believed to possess medicinal properties, with various parts, including the bark and leaves, utilized in traditional herbal remedies. Beyond its potential therapeutic uses, this tree contributes to improved air quality, acting as a natural air purifier by filtering out pollutants.

Type of Plant (Indoor or Outdoor): While the Alstonia Scholaris can thrive outdoors in its natural habitat, it is best suited for spacious outdoor environments due to its significant size at maturity.
