The golden shower tree is a medium-sized flowering tree growing up to 10-15 metres high and 4-6 metres wide.

 

This beautiful ornamental tree has large deep green leaves up to 450mm in length and aromatic yellow flowers arranged in large pendulous sprays. It produces long dark-brown seed pods 30-60 cm in length.

 

It is relatively drought and salt tolerant, growing best in well-drained soil and dry climates and positioned in full sun.

 

The Cassia fistula is often planted as an ornamental tree but also for the biological and medicinal properties of it’s root, bark and fruit.
