We are very familiar with the golden shower tree, the Cassia fistula, with its beautiful yellow flowers covering the whole crown during its flowering season. There are hybrids of Cassia fistula with Cassia javanica or Cassia bakeriana. One such hybrid can be seen at the Dataran in PBG. The showers of flowers looks very much like that of Cassia fistula x javanica. The tree is a compact tree suitable for a small garden. It is not commonly found here unlike the Cassia fistula. Cassia javanica or Apple blossom cassia although a native of the neighbouring island of Java is also not common here. Cassia fistula is a native of the Indian subcontinent and South East Asia. The genus Cassia L. is in the family Fabaceae, which is the pea family. It is a treat to catch the tree flowering although it was not as showy as the Cassia fistula in bloom.
