Ployalthia longifolia – Ashoka Tree
The slim and lovely Ashoka tree shoots straight into the air with a narrow form of drooping branches of layered, feathery leaves. Inconspicuous flowers appear in late spring and early summer on the tropical evergreen and are followed by inedible fruit that ripens to a purple-black color. Super tall and thin, a single Mast tree can reach 30 to 45 feet high and 8 to 10 feet wide
