Parkinsonia aculeata may be


I agree with … It does look like Parkinsonia aculeata.


Jerusalem thorn is a small tree growing to 25 ft tall with a short trunk and a graceful, spreading, sometimes weeping, crown to 20 ft wide.
Jerusalem thorn has peculiar straplike, twice compound leaves that look like long, feathery streamers. The leaves appear shortly after rain, they fold up at night, and usually within a few days the tiny leaflets drop off, leaving the persistent rachises (midribs) to flutter like streamers in the wind.
Flowers are yellow and fragrant, 2 cm in diameter, growing from a long slender stalk in groups of 8-10.  
Though the plant can flower all year round the main flowering period is October (Ref. Flowers of India)

Fabaceae-Caesalpinioideae (Caesalpiniaceae) Week: Parkinsonia aculeata: Parkinsonia aculeata
Growing wild in Pune on Vetal/Hanuman Tekdi.
Non native. Naturalized. Often observed roadside towards drier areas like Nagar Solapur Saswad etc.
Interesting fact: Leaves are reduced to small sized projections so stems are herbaceous and carry out the role of photosynthesis.


Is it useful to Rx Parkinsons disease? just wondering about the name?


I don’t think so.
Just for information: From Wikipedia
Etymology :
The genus name Parkinsonia honors the English botanist John Parkinson (1567–1650), while the species Latin name aculeata refers to the thorny stem of this plant.
