Rainbow Shower Tree: Featured Plant of the Week

Cassia fistula x C. javanica (Rainbow Cassia)

This tree is a hybrid between Cassia fistula (Golden Shower Tree) and Cassia javanica(Apple Blossom Tree).  The flowers are a blend of the two trees.  Some are more yellow than pink, while others are the reverse, giving a very spectacular look to the tree when it is in full bloom.  We propagate this tree by air-layering to get an identical tree as the parent.  If you are looking for something a little different, but very beautiful, this may be the tree for you.
