Millingtonia hortensis, known as the Indian Cork Tree or Tree Jasmine, is a tall and elegant ornamental tree, reaching heights of 15 to 25 meters. It’s recognized for its slender trunk with light, cork-like bark, and long, fern-like leaves that contribute to a delicate foliage texture. The tree’s most notable feature is its abundant white, trumpet-shaped flowers, which bloom throughout the year in tropical climates. These fragrant blossoms, reminiscent of jasmine, are especially aromatic at night, making the tree a delightful addition to gardens and avenues.

The Indian Cork Tree is relatively easy to care for. It thrives in sunny locations with well-drained soil and needs regular watering during its growth phase. Once established, it becomes drought-tolerant. Its size and the enchanting night-time fragrance of its flowers make it ideal for large gardens, parks, or as a roadside tree, offering both aesthetic beauty and a pleasant scent.
