The Champaca tree (Michelia champaca), also known as Magnolia champaca, is a member of the Magnoliaceae family. It's native to the tropical and subtropical regions of Southeast Asia, including India, Nepal, Bhutan, and parts of China. Here are some details regarding the botany of this tree:
  • Growth: Champaca trees are evergreen and can grow up to 30 meters (98 feet) tall under optimal conditions. The tree has a slender, straight trunk with spreading branches that form a broad canopy.
  • Leaves: The leaves of the champaca tree are simple, lanceolate (lance-shaped) to elliptical in shape, and grow alternately on the branches. They're shiny, leathery, and dark green in color, measuring about 15-25 cm in length and 5-7 cm in width.
  • Flowers: The champaca tree is renowned for its highly fragrant flowers, which are generally yellow to orange in color, though color can vary depending on the species. The flowers are hermaphroditic, containing both male (stamens) and female (pistil) organs, and are usually about 1-2 inches in diameter.
  • Fruit and Seeds: The fruit of the champaca tree is a conelike aggregate of follicles. Each follicle houses 1-2 seeds, which are released when the fruit dehisces (splits along a built-in line of weakness at maturity).
  • Bark: The bark of the tree is smooth and gray in color, and it has been used traditionally in various forms of medicine.
The champaca tree is highly valued for its ornamental and aromatic qualities. It's often grown in gardens and parks for its beautiful, fragrant flowers.
