Kandivali[w] is celebrating Cassia grandis!: Cassia grandis is one of the first Pink Cassia to bloom & It is blooming in Kandivali for last 8 days. I think C.grandis is fairly rare in Mumbai and since we have an avenue of it in Mahavir Nagar [Kandivali, Mumbai], if any one is interested I can show these trees. ... &  in this area we have an avenue of Cassia roxburgie, Kigellia pinnata, spathodea campnulata, adam, amaltas and Tabebuia! This is very unusual for N.Mumai!.....

- Sharing some amazing pictures of Cassia grandis flowering in Kandivali, Mumbai
- Earlier today, I saw another Cassia grandis in the premises of the Western Railways HQ in Churchgate [opposite platform no. 4]. It is flowering sparsely, not as well as the ones in Kandivali. It is laden with pods and several of them have split open on the tree itself. There are two more Cassia sp. with leafy stipules beside this tree and look forward to seeing them flower.

Trees of Bangalore - RA - Cassia grandis - Brazillian Cassia Tree:  Coral Shower Tree is native to tropical regions of America. Apparently originating in the Amazon, the species’ natural distribution cannot be accurately described.  
It is a deciduous or semideciduous tree that grows up to 18 m in height and 50 cm d.b.h.
The trunk is straight and the spreading crown is high, irregular, and made up of dangling branches.
The leaves are paripinnate and made up of 10 to 20 pairs of oblong leaflets that are 3 to 6 cm long and rounded or obtuse at the apex and base.  
Cassia grandis is used as an ornamental to beautify streets, avenues, parks, and gardens.
The sweet tasting and bad smelling pulp of the fruit is edible and is used as a laxative. The wood is hard and heavy; it is used in rural areas for home construction, sheds, and structures for roofs and in cabinet- making.
The pink to purple flowers turn salmon-color with time and are arranged in racemes. The species blooms in spring, and fruits (legumes) ripen in summer. 

It's one f d most splendid tree wen in bloom.

Fabaceae-Caesalpinioideae (Caesalpiniaceae) Week: Cassia grandis /Coral Shower Tree from Pune:  Sharing dis, one of the most beautiful trees - Cassia grandis / Coral Shower Tree, from Pune.  It was in a restricted area (no photography allowed) and yet I was so mesimerized by it's beauty that I clicked these shots in zoom. 
Dated- 19 th June 2010.

Yes for confirmation of these pink flowered Cassia species you need close up of flower to see swellings (present or not), stipules and leaf hairiness to differentiate.
yes please tell us, ..., where is this tree?
We have some in Belur, across the river from Calcutta in a garden, there too some guards guard these trees very well...
SO what's with this tree that on the west coast of India and here on the east coast of India they guard this tree and its surrounding so well?

Please validate.


yes, good set of photos with minute characters
And I think it z Cassia javanica subsp. renigera.
Cassia renigera has longer filaments swollen in the middle, not seen in above flowers. In addition C. renigera has large reniform stipules almost 2.5 cm broad, whereas C. grandis has minute stipules not larger than 2 mm. Although leaf base is not clearly seen, but stipules appear to be much smaller like Cassia grandis.

pink cassia for id : Requesting identification of this pink cassia.
Is this Cassia javanica ?
This is Cassia grandis. The pods are dehiscent.
Cassia grandis
yes Cassia grandis
Thank you all! Could someone please tell me the key feature by which this was confirmed as 'grandis' ? I searched on net but it was difficult for me to find the key which will help me to differentiate between various species of pink cassia.
The thick, woody pods are immediately indicative of Cassia grandis as against the slender, cylindrical pods of some other pink cassias. The immature leaflets of this tree are of a characteristic coppery colour, some of which can be seen in your second pic. The flowers of this tree lack the three swollen yellow stamens of C. javanica etc. If you take a close look at the flower, one of the petals will have a yellow base (not evident in your photos).

Requesting to please ID this pink Cassia captured in Jijamata Udyan, Mumbai in March 2013.
Cassia renigera.
Thank you ... for ID...
Could you please also indicate how does one recognise Cassia renigera, I am very confused with Cassia.
Also could you please provide the key for identification of different pink Cassias?
This is Cassia grandisThe immature leaflets of this tree are of a characteristic coppery tinge, some of which are visible in your second pic. In the flowers of C. grandis, one of the upper petals has a yellow basal spot as is evident in your third photograph. The flowers of this tree lack the three swollen yellow stamens of C. javanica and C. renigera.

This tree has flowered for the first time in our lake. Would be grateful if you'd identify it from the pix so that I can send it out to our residents as our lake update!
Please send the close up of the flowers for proper ID. You may also send better photograph of the foliage as well.
it could be Senna roxburghii
Pending observation of photographs requested the needle of suspicion points to Cassia grandis.

Yesterday (30.3.10) I had posted the photo of this tree and thought it to be Cassia marginata.
Today (31.10.10) I m sending another photo for ... I even thought it as C. nodosa.
This plant can be Cassia javanica subsp. renigera commonly known as Burmese Pink Cassia.

Please send a better picture of the  close up of the flowers showing the stamens arrangement. The close up photograph sent by you is not clear as it is difficult to visualise the stamens arrangement.

An avenue tree of small to medium size, Is it  Gliricidia maculata?
Prantik, March 17, 2009
Certainly not Gliricidia maculata, can we have bigger pictures? closeups may be. I think it's carambola.
Links for Averrhoa carambola inflorescence, if it helps: http://www.ars.usda.gov/images/docs/12590_12784/AVERRHOAFLOWER.jpg, http://www.mytho-fleurs.com/images/Fleurs_du_Vietnam/Averrhoa_carambola.jpg & http://www.hear.org/starr/images/full/starr-030523-0076.jpg

gliricidia is very light purple, almost white.
It is neither Gliricidia nor Averrhoa. In my opinion it is pink
cassia. Here is a link of a variety of pink cassia but of a lighter
colour. I have both the varieties at my farm in Wayanad in Kerala.
http://www.redbubble.com/people/rainy/art/2619976-2-pink-cassia 
I agree with ...
It's Cassia javanica (Java cassia, Pink shower tree, Pink Lady, Appleblossom Shower) - though there are many varieties in it.
See the link for lots of pictures: http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=Cassia%20Javanica&w=all&s=int
Definitely appears to be one variety of Pink cassia.
These two images appears close to images of Cassia grandis

As the filaments does not seem to be swollen, it should be Cassia roxburghii DC.  as per images & keys herein

Attaching cropped pics to show the swollen filaments and the mucronate tips of the leaves.

It seems Cassia grandis as per inflorescence and leaf type and shape of leaflets.
Arrangement of stamens and pod structure are very important in differentiating species of Cassia. Hence post appropriate pictures for proper ID.
