Identification- Nile Tulip Tree?:  

I am an amateur tree spotter, and just beginning to learn the names of some trees. Only recently started looking at the shapes of leaves 🙂
Photo taken Dec 11, 2011 at Kalyan Nagar, Bangalore, Karnataka.
This is a very common tree in Bangalore. Based on Karthikeyan’s book ‘flowering trees of Bangalore’. I feel this is a Nile tulip tree, but the flowers look different in my picture compared to Karthikeyan’s book… the leaf shape looks identical, and the description of pods matches…


Seems like Markhamia lutea belonging to the family Bignoniaceae.
Commonly known as yellow bell bean tree, it is native to Africa.
Could you post pictures of the pods as well? Please wait for experts to comment.


It is indeed Markhamia lutea. I was not knowing the name Nile Tulip tree. On search it is same Markhamia lutea Bignoniaceae.


Thanks … and … That was useful. I am attaching a picture with the pods. Once the pods dry up, they turn brown and twist like a spiral (dont have a snap of that).

I read somewhere that in Africa, elephants eat the leaves of this tree.
