Planting and care

A magnificent spring-flowering street or park tree for tropical regions, the golden shower tree (Cassia fistula) slowly matures up to 60 feet tall and 60 to 75 feet wide with a rounded silhouette.
Native to the Indian subcontinent, it naturally grows in fertile, well-drained soils in a climate that is warm but very dry in winter but then inundated with rains in spring to trigger the flowering. It s named a "shower" tree because its tiny yellow flowers occur in a long pendant cluster, called a raceme, measuring 6 to 30 inches long.

Sunlight: Full sun
Soil: well-drained soil
Water: Medium
Temperature: 30F
Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Galphimia Glauca

  • Plant the golden shower tree where it grows and flowers its best:
  • Choose any fertile soil landscape that basks in at least 10 hours of direct sunlight daily.
  • Avoid any spot where the soil remains soggy after rain.
  • Once established with far-reaching roots, the golden shower tree tolerates considerable drought without ill, according to Margaret Barwick, author of "Tropical and Subtropical Trees."

Typical uses of Galphimia Glauca

Special features: Ornamental. Shade tree. Formerly planted in some populated areas as a street tree, but this use has waned as planners have shifted to using Cassia x nealiae for this purpose because this hybrid does not drop as many leaves at flowering time and does not produce any seed pods.

Ornamental use: The plant is used for ornamental purpose.

Medicinal use: Galphimia is also generally used as a homeopathic reatment for asthma and allergies.
