Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Cittapātali:A tree in the Asurabhavana (S.v.238) which lives for a whole aeon.When the Asuras were pushed out of the deva-world into their present abode,it was the presence of this tree which revealed to them their where-about (J.i.202; SNA.ii.485; MA.i.476; DhA.i.272).

It is said (DhA.i.280) that whenever the Cittapātali blossomed,the Asuras thought of the Pāricchattaka-tree which they had left behind in Tāvatimsa and started making preparations for a war against Sakka.
