This beautiful tree in my garden is a native tree from Brazil, named Canafístula or Chuva-de-Ouro (means in English "Rain of Gold"). The Cassia ferruginea, from the family Leguminosae-Caesalpinoideae, bears the most flagrant flowers, which are arranged in hanging racemes. The flowers appear in October, November and December.
View to the back of the house. This tree with red fruits is a Pitanga Tree, in Portuguese, Pitangueira. (Click on green link to go to other page).
