This is a national flower of Thailand and one of the most impressive cassias. From early spring through summer, it displays beautiful cascades of golden flowers. Cassia is a large genus with some 500 species, among which are a number of highly attractive flowering trees. To many tropical gardeners, the most beautiful is Cassia fistula. This is a medium to large tree with ovate, pointed leaflets; when these drop, usually in the dry season, masses of bright gold flower clusters appear on almost every branch.
Sunlight: Full sun
Soil: Well-drained soil.
Water: Water the tree freely during the heat of spring through fall when the plant actively grows with new leaves and stem length. Supplement natural rainfall as needed to keep the soil moist. Droughts during the summer growing season retards growth and may cause premature leaf drop or branch die-back.
Temprature: Ideally, the cool winter temperatures but extensive frost or subfreezing temperatures cause full leaf defoliation.
Fertilizer: Apply a general, well-balanced fertilizer annually.
