Pulai Tree - Alstonia angustiloba or Alstonia scholaris?

Where was this tree seen? In Kentridge Park.
When were the photos taken? July 2006
What do I think about this encounter with the tree?
I think not many people have seen a Pulai tree covered with such
beautiful blooms in their lifetime.
How do I feel? I feel blessed to have seen this tree at the height of its beauty and glad that I have these photos to remind me of such beauty when it is there no more.

Alstonia angustiloba or Alstonia scholaris? I just found out that there are two species and from my photos and those in the books I have, I cannot tell the difference.
