DescriptionPods deep purple brown; flowers bright yellow in terminal panicles. Unlike Caesalpinia the sepals are equal and the pod is winged all round, not splitting when ripe. There are no leafy stipules, unlike Delonix.
InterestPeltophorum - from Gk pelte, shield, and phoreo, to bear; from the shape of the stigma. The bark contains a yellowbrown dye, used in Java for dark-brown batiks. The tree is often planted in twons because, apart from being pretty and evergreen, has deep roots rather than ones which damage pavements etc.
