After a quest of 4 years, I found Kalumediriya (Calamander or Coromandel - Diospyros quaesita) saplings. As I mentioned in my previous post, Kalumediriya is endemic to Sri Lanka and it is one of the rarest plants. It is a slow growing tree and it takes more than 100 years to grow to its full scale. This is classified as a super luxury class wood.
Above picture was taken from Haldummulla Herbal Garden. We bought 35 Kalumediriya saplings from there and planning to plant them in 35 homes.
For those who live in Colombo can see a Kalumediriya plant at Baddegana Wetland Park.
