Important Ayurvedic Tree - Bitter Bark - Fresh Seeds


Bitter Bark - Alstonia scholaris

You are bidding for 10 seeds of this tree.

This is a large growing tree from the Indian sub-continent. It is used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine as a treatment for many ailments including Malaria. In this respect it is believed to work in the same way as Jesuits Bark (Quinine). It is a member of the large Apocynaceae family, whose members generally have poisonous, unpleasant or medicinal properties.

The leaves have a shape rather like the umbrella plant often seen sold as a houseplant and small specimens are eminently suitable for this purpose. It also bears clusters of fragrant white flowers that are followed by seed horns containing numerous seeds on small parachutes.

A true tropical so only suitable for Zone 10b and above, it can be used as a garden tree in areas where there is no frost. Elsewhere grow in a greenhouse, conservatory or as a houesplant.

Growing Instructions

I always sell seeds that I have experience of growing so the instructions provided represent 1st hand experience. These instructions may change over the course of time (as I find out more about the plants and seeds) but the details that you will be provided with, at purchase, represent the latest version. If you have any questions concerning the culture requirements of this or any other item I am selling please contact me: I will be happy to provide extra details you require.

Bidding on more than 1 item?

I will always combine shipping wherever this is possible and all auctions finishing within a SEVEN day period will qualify.  If I have not sent an invoice, please e-mail me for a combined invoice when you have finished bidding/buying, doing this will almost certainly save you money. 

Due to the varying weights of the seeds it is not possible to apply a standard discount without overcharging for the majority of cases.  Additionally I cannot apply a postal discount unless PayPal payments are combined.

General Disclaimer

All seeds sold are fresh and are stored in conditions suitable to promote the viability of that particular type of  seed.   All plants are guaranteed to be free from disease when supplied. 

Germinating seeds and growing plants are subject to many other factors including the conditions under which they are raised (including but not limited to: Light, moisture, soil, humidity) and the skill of the individual grower.  As the vendor, such  factors are completely outside of my control and all seeds and plants are supplied on this basis.
