    Genus of over 500 species of annuals and perennials, deciduous, semi-persistent and evergreen shrubs and trees, originating from the woods of tropical areas. Cassia fistula is a small tree up to 10-12 m tall with a spreading habit, from semi-persistent to deciduous, with leaves composed of 6-16 bright green ovate leaflets. Older leaves fall off during periods of drought. From spring to summer the numerous fragrant, bright yellow flowers appear, collected in pendulous racemes up to 40-50 cm. The fruits are characteristic cylindrical legumes, dark brown in colour, whose length varies from 25 to 50 cm; the seeds are lenticular.

    Pedoclimatic needs

    It prefers exposures in full sun, sheltered from the wind and loose, well-drained soil. A non-rustic tropical species, it should be grown outdoors only where temperatures do not fall below +4°/+5°C. However, adult specimens are more resistant to the cold and can resist temperatures close to 0°C for short periods.
