This is a Thai species, similar to C. javanica, that has gained in popularity here in Miami, FL, USA.

Fabaceae-Caesalpinioideae (Caesalpiniaceae) Week: Cassia bakeriana and Cassia nealiae:

Could any members provide me some characters by which Cassia bakeriana differ from related species Cassia renigera and Cassia javanica, the other pink flowering species with swollen filaments.
Similarly differences of Cassia nealiae from related species.

What is the difference between this and Cassia javanica?


Many thanks … for your query – am sure it will help validate my ID in turn; would stand corrected if wrong.
Attaching cropped version of the main photo. Hopefully it will help those wanting to check stamens.

My ID is based on description at the Top Tropicals.


Perhaps this should help

Actually I was looking for the description of the number of stamens with node on it.

To my belief such stamens are 3 in Cassia javanica whereas here in Cassia bakeriana all lower 5 have the nodes on them.

Is this the clear difference…?


The leaves in … C. javanica picture are slightly acuminate while in C. bakeriana they do not seems to acuminate.
