Tree for ID : Lalbagh, Bangalore : 231212 : AK-1 : 9 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (3)

A small tree seen at Lalbagh, Bangalore on 24/7/2012.

Bright yellow flowers and leaves suggest some Cassia species.
Sorry I have just one picture, have cropped it for better view.
Id please.

It looks like Caesalpinia sappan.

I am afraid it is not. In C.sappan the leaves are bi-pinnate and inflorescence is also different from the one posted

My old post still remains unid.

During my subsequent visits to Lalbagh, trying looking for it but could not find it.

Looking at the no. of leaflets and other features (though hazy) it could be Senna multijuga.

Thanks … If I can locate the small tree, will definitely take more pictures during my next visit.

To me also looks close as per images at

A small plant, seen in the first week of this month with bright yellow flowers in Lalbagh.

For Species id please.

Pl. check comparative images at Senna page in efi site.

It may be ear pod tree…..!!!!!

Ear Pod Tree flowers are much different.

It is well known to me.

Was it a sapling of a tree or a herb or shrub ?
There is hardly any details in such small size images. Pl. post min. 800 by 600 pixel images.

Pl. check comparative images at Senna

It was a shrub about 5-7 feet in height.
Adding pictures of higher resolution.

I could not find a match for the leaves in Senna page on Eflora.


The leaves of my plant are much smaller.

Hope our experts give their opinion.

There are two other species which appear close to your images at Senna page in efi site. Pl. check yourself.

May be as per images and details at Senna multijuga
