Cassia with pinkish-orange flowers Is it Cassia roxburghii ? UD 8212011 001: For last a couple of years when in town once in a while I have seen these strange arrangement of the flowers ... see figure 1 and 2.
The tree is in public space, at GolPark , Kolkata, where Vivekanand's statue is... its a traffic circle with many many buses, taxis, cars trucks, auto rickshaws galore... all honking and spewing out grey, black or white smoke... and high decibel sounds... This tree seems to be thriving..

Date/Time- August 15th 2011

Location- Place, Altitude, GPS- Sea level or may be a bit below... Ganges plain

Habitat- Garden/ Urban/ Wild/ Type- Garden , Urban, in heavily polluted air

Plant Habit- Tree/ Shrub/ Climber/ Herb- Tree

Height/Length- approximately 15 to 18 feet

Leaves Type/ Shape/ Size- pinnate, about 1.5 inches long, fine hair

Inflorescence Type/ Size- Unique, Panicle growing from central vein outwards..see photos

Flowers Size/ Colour/ Calyx/ Bracts- across approximately 1.5 inches

Fruits Type/ Shape/ Size Seeds- not seen yet

Other Information like Fragrance, Pollinator, Uses etc.- do not know yet

I think this may be Cassia Roxburghii.... need confirmation please....

If my interpretation is wrong ... what is its ID?


flowers of India is what I check first now a days...
but that slide's structure of the inflorescence is different that what is here...
could you please check these...
1): .http://www.flickr.com/photos/blackdiamondimages/3521753738/in/
photostream/

2): http://www.fairchildgarden.org/livingcollections/whatsblooming2/october/
1 is from a guy in australia, 2 is from Fairchild garden which is Univ Miami florida Bot garden..


Quite likely the ID as C.roxburghii is correct. One grown up tree is at Hansoti Lane, Ghatkopar (W) planted by Dr.Hansoti himself.
please tell me if your tree has this peculiar way the flowers arise as if out of the spine/vertebral column of a person lying face down .. and the drooping leaves are the persons ribs and arms...
its the only analogy I can think of...
and I dont see it described the way I see it ...
that's my problem.. with this diagnosis...
also the flowers not exactly pink...
they are peachy-orangish- pink with reddish mixed in ... what does that make ???
I think it should be C. roxburghii only. The other three species with similar flowers all have filaments swollen in the middle.
and flower spike growing out of the "vertebral column" type arrangement... ????
is it described?
I finally found something that looks like this.. at floridata site...http://www.floridata.com/ref/c/cass_rox.cfm
now what I want is a key for flowering pink.. red cassia...
Here it is
1a. Ovary glabrous, leaflets oblong, densely velvety, tip mucronate; leafy
bracts at base of each flower; stipules large leafy..................................Cassia renigera
1b. Ovary hairy............................................................................................(2)
2a. Stipules 5 mm long, linear, not leafy, leaflets acute, glabrous beneath;
petals pink, fading to yellow-pink or white.............................................Cassia nodosa
2b. Stipules 12-15 mm long, leafy, lealets usually obtuse, silky beneath
; petals pink, turning dark red, fading to white........................................Cassia javanica

Request for ID: 130611SR1 Is this Cassia marginata?:
This tree has been labelled as Cassia marginata at Lalbagh Botanical Gardens.
Though plantlist and tropicos say this is a synonym for Cassia roxburghii DC, both flowers look quite different.
Could you please help identify this tree?
Date - 7-June-2011
Location - Lalbagh Botanical Gardens
Photos are by ...

Its cassia roxburghii - Red Cassia
The branches will look different from any other pink cassia variant, and the flowers raised above the leaf stalks
Cassia roxburghii for sure....flower stay on trees for long....
I am confused between two species that are supposed to be Cassia roxburghii.
In the first one, I see more orange shades. The stamens are yellow. The flowers range from yellowish-orange to orange to deep pink. The description in Blatter book for Cassia roxburghii matches this.
The second one has less variation in color. Mostly pink to deep-pink. The stamens are orange to light red.
Are these two different species or are both classified as Cassia roxburghii.

Yes Cassia marginata Roxb. now correctly known as Cassia wallichii DC.
pink to rose flowers with longer filaments without swellings in the middle.

Cassia roxburghii DC. from Mumbai : VG-JAN-01 : 3 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (4)
Both during and out of the flowering period, the Pink Cassias are sprouting new leaves throughout the year and there is much to delight in the charm of their youth. Each raw, yellow-green newborn leaf of Cassia roxburghii must go through a subtle palette of glaucous tints before arriving at its mature green complexion.
Unlike the large leafy stipules of Cassia javanica, those of C. roxburghii are narrow, slender, and sickle-shaped.
Photographed in Kandivali, North Mumbai.
Thanks ... for your keen observations and documenting it with photographs. As I said earlier it is interesting and important to follow your plants in non flowering stage too. Nicely depicted it. Worth remembering for all.

In the lurking shadows of the twilight, these gleamy raindrops were conceiving a surreal reflection of the adjacent tree, much in contrast to the shallow vacuum of the ambient bokeh orbs. These fleeting raptures would soon dissolve into a realm that no lens or eye could contain.
Photographed in the evening rain in Kandivali, North Mumbai (July 2014).
Simply Marvellous!!! Out of the world!!!
Thank you very much ..., for your comments.

An old picture of mine.
Cultivated, avenue tree seen in Bhopal during a visit with tiny pink flowers.
Cassia grandis
Cassia grandis seen at Lalbagh, Bangalore seemed a little different.
efi page on Cassia grandis 
Cassia roxburghii/ javanica. Please verify. 
With no swellings on the 3 long stamens it should be either C. roxhburghiii  or C.grandis. It is not possible to decide the species as the photograph is not clear and difficult to get details of the flower and leaf arrangement etc. Please check Trees of Delhi web site specifically page 239 for differentiation.
Thanks for the information. I have the book 'Trees of Delhi', but not with me right now. Will definitely go through it.
The picture was taken at a singal, when the vehicle stopped. There was low light and it was raining.
Couldn't get better pictures.

Cassia seen in Jijamata Udyan on 15th Aug,2011.
With very few flowers.
Cassia species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net)     
it could be C. nodosa. But the leaf character is not clear in the picture.

Re: Identification of Tree Species : 10 posts by 6 authors. Attachments (3)
Can someone please help in identifying this tree species? It almost certainly seems to be a species of cassia to me. Is this an endemic species to Tamil Nadu?
I saw this along the roadside while driving near Thanjavur. 
Any help on this is much appreciated.

Pl. check comparative images at Cassia

It is Cassia roxburghii DC., 

This tree is certainly not endemic to Tamilnadu. Most probably this is Cassia roxburghii.

Cassia roxburghii

Pl check for Cassia roxburghii

Saw this Cassia in the ancient ruins complex in Hampi, KA in October 2019.
Is this C. roxburghii? Requested to please validate.

I guess it is correct ID !
