VALMIKI: OBSERVER OF NATURE: Valmiki mentioned SHIRISHA tree in his Ramayan. The scientific name of this tree is Albizzia lebbek. Commonly known as Siris tree. The tree bears innumerable heads of fuzzy, green and white scented flowers.
I remember a night at Gowalior where I had the experience of having the smell of the flowers of this tree, where it used to be a common avenue tree in 1983. I still remember that night. Attaching an image of SHIRISHA.

Tall tree full with cream colored fragrant flowers at a housing society garden at Pune. Is this Albizia lebbeck ? Please validate


This does not look like Siris [Albizia lebbeck] to me. The leaves are different. My trees are also flowering now. Sending a few photographs for comparison


I tried to capture some more images today not so good though. I hope it helps to Id the tree. Also found a dried flower on the ground. Attaching photographs of the same

Albizia odoratissima (L.f.) Benth.
syn. Albizia odoratissima var. mollis Baker
syn. Albizia odoratissima var. lebbeckifolia Haines
I found this flower on the forest floor @ Yeoor last April.
Not seen the tree or fruits.
Id is based on keys* above.
Also perused the keys at FoC & Fl Pak.
It is pertinent to note that Albizia odoratissima & Albizia procera are very closely related (morphological). The calyx is pubescent in Albizia odoratissima & glabrous in Albizia procera. My identification rests on this parameter as calyx length was not measured. Different keys use varying parameters but I have found this parameter (calyx pubescence vs glabrous) to be consistent across descriptions in various texts.
I have gone through most threads on the group site, if not all, which were labelled as A. odoratissima or A. procera in the group archives. There is considerable confusion / assumption wrt identity in these posts, hence this post.
Open to discussion/ correction.

Colour of the bark? Characteristic in Albizzia procera


Further, I am going by key features (calyx pubescence, length) and bark color is supposed to be a distinctive but not a diagnostic attribute of either species.


I have not seen this shape of leaflets in A. odoratissima.
In some sources calyx of A. odoratissima is said to be pubescent as well.
I have never seen A. odoratissima in SGNP or surrounding forests and it is likely that your photos are A. procera.


have you discounted A. lebbeck?
I just saw your flowers were found in April so that is a very likely choice.


‘ ..calyx of A. odoratissima is said to be pubescent as well’ – Of course, my id is resting on that attribute (please see my initial post).
‘have you discounted A. lebbeck?’ – No;
It could be Albiziz lebbeck as I see the gland between the distant leaflets (DSC04506) and am posting another image (DSC04504) which may be a gland at the base of the petiole. Taken together they suggest A. lebbeck.
Now I remember, the reason I decided on A. odoratissima was because I considered the inflorescence to be a panicle (c/f heads axillary) plus clayx pubescent. Thank You for your inputs

Saw many such trees on the way to Hatgad, Saputara, GJ from Nashi, MH in Feb 2017. The tree was leafless and was entirely covered with these shiny pods.
Is this Albizzia lebbeck?

Please clarify whether  all the pictures are from the same tree.  The third picture looks different.

The second picture showing the bark with numerous small raised spots  are known as lenticels commonly seen in Leucaena leucocephala .  They help in exchange of gases  similar to stomatas in leaves.


pic 2 and 3 are different and so which tree gave you those seedpods?

The pods and leaves belong to Albizia lebbeck (L.) Benth. (Leguminosae). The bark in the last picture has a good growth of lichen, the circular grey spots.

¿ Albizia ?  
Dear friends,
This tree is found planted in a resort in Jaisalmer. If these only two pictures help in ID, I would like to have the genus Albizia validated.

I think closer to images at Albizia lebbeck (L.) Benth. as per comparative images at Albizia

Thanks … Even I too think the same.
It is planted as an ornamental. It must be the Albizia lebbeck.

A cultivated tree seen in Mumbai.

Albizia Species?

Phyllanthaceae ??


Not Phyllanthaceae.


Albizia sp. only could be lebbeck or procera,


ID by Anjaneyulu ji is correct. Albizzia species, mostly A.lebbeck.

Flowers fragrant.

Albizia Species?

Pictures taken on 28th March,16.


Yes. Albizia.


Please check Albizia odoratissima.


As per comparative images at Albizia, it does not match with Albizia odoratissima, but seems closer to Albizia procera 


The main veins of leaflets here are distinctly eccentric which rules out A. procera in which the leaflets are 5-7 cm long but here leaflets appear to be much smaller.  Hence A. odoratissima L.f. may be checked once again which in my opinion is more probable.


If still having doubts, then might be an exotic. I am not sure about the identities of the images in  efi website.


Thanks, …, I will check images of A. odoratissima in efi site thoroughly in a few days.


Another post from …, also from Lalbagh was also identified by a few experts as A odoratissima.
I am not sure, but this could be the same tree.
Posting … link below….

Fabaceae – Mimosoideae – Bangalore – RA – Paraserianthes falcataria – Molucca Albizia Tree – White Albizia


I am attaching herewith images of Albizia procera (India, Roxburgh s. n. (K000800890) – type) and A. odoratissima for comparison.  Albizia falcataria = Adenanthera falcataria = Paraserianthes falcataria will have branched spicate inflorescences.  No image of the same is in hand at present.

The tree was in full bloom and there were very few leaves.

I have tried to search for pictures with leaves. Adding them.
Hope they help in identifying.

Bark looks different from images at Albizia procera(Roxb.) Benth.

Looks more close to images at Albizia lebbeck (L.) Benth.

Request Tree ID 087 – Lalbagh, Bangalore – RA: Could it be a species of Albizia? Family: Mimosaceae.
Wait for experts to comment.


I also feel its albizia for sure, some variant of white sirs


Some Albizia species indeed.
Can’t place it. Looks close to Albizia odoratissima but the bark is not yellow here.
Doesnt also look close to Albizia chinensis.
Eager to know about the species.

Very beautiful to look at it as there are hardly any leaves and tree is full of flowers.


To me it appears close to Albizia odoratissima (L.f.) Benth.  as per images herein.


Albizia lucidior. Size, type of leaves and size of leaflets would confirm the id.


Thanks, … Leaves do not match with images at

If more information about leaves is given, the id can thought of.


An example of how leaves can be photographed while asking for an id. A4 size card sheet with 1cmx1cm grid can tell size.
If not this, upper, lower surfaces, nerves; lamina shape size margin apex base; petiole length features should be described in words. If plants is inaccessible, then binoculars can be used.
If only scanty pictures taken a long ago are there, then it is better to wait (for asking id) till a repeat equipped visit is made.
Hope the suggestions are taken in a positive manner.

This is probably the same tree in Lalbagh posted by me earlier, in which … thinks it is closer to A. procera.


It is not clear whether the inflorescences are fascicled (in clusters) or in panicles. If in clusters then A. lathamii, which it is not. If panicled, then A. odoratissima. Leaf samples are also meager and in this situation it is difficult to tell the name correctly.


Albizia procera (Roxb.) Benth. ??


it is familiar to A.lebbeck and A. procera 


Bark looks different from images at Albizia procera(Roxb.) Benth.
Looks more close to images at Albizia lebbeck(L.) Benth.


I also think this is Albizia lebbeck.


I am sure this is not Albizzia lebbeck. I am familiar with both the trees (seen in Mysore).


Pl. check.


What he has posted is A.lebbeck.


I am posting the photo of the Albizzia lebbeck (flowering branch).


Both are A.lebbeck.

Tree in Lalbagh appears to be quite old.


Thanks.  But I am not convinced.
