Cassia fistula with golden showers of brilliant pendulous flowers

Cassia fistula (Golden Shower Tree/Cassia, Purging Cassia)

These ever-flowering large trees are popularly grown along the median strip of highways and roads or by the roadsides, countrysides and even at public parks.

A stunning landscape plant when the Golden Shower Tree is in full bloom.

It is an extremely glorious and magnificent tree, to say the least.

Too bad we can’t accommodate this beauty in our small front yard.

Fortunately, these splendid trees are planted aplenty in Malaysia, our beloved tropical country.

Unless your residence has a very large yard, you just have to be contented admiring them from afar. That’s what we do whenever we travel around.

Not surprising that Cassia fistula is Thailand’s national tree and flower, as well as Kerala’s state flower in India.
