Raintree (samanea saman)

Catalog # 98 - This beautiful crowned tropical tree is known as the species that the Swiss family Robinson built their massive tree house in. As an indoor ornamental it adds a real tropical flavor, growing rather large in a short time, potsizing helps to determine it's size. The beautiful dainty light green leaves, close at night or in a sudden downpour of rain. Legend has it to be the juice of the cheribus or cicadas, and the grass always grows greener beneath it's perfectly symmetrical canopy. It flowers pink tipped tufts from spring to fall and the wood is sometimes used to make furniture.
