Beautiful flowers open in compact bunches on this fast-growing, deciduous tree which flowers in spring and sheds its leaves in the winter months. Although its origin is in Southeast Asia, it has been extensively grown in tropical areas worldwide as a straight-trunked garden tree owing to its impressive appearance at all times of the year.   It is used medicinally for treating constipation, colic, chlorosis, and urinary disorders. Its leaves are effective against herpes simplex and the bark of Cassia is one of the ingredients in ayurvedic and other traditional medicine antidiabetic formulations. USDA Zone 10
