This small to medium-sized Kassod Tree from the Fabaceae Family (Leguminosae) along Pasir Panjang Road is very free flowering and frequently produces clusters of floral buds, which over time, open up to reveal the yellow flowers within.

In terms of size, it is definitely bigger and taller than the more common Cassia surattensis (common name: Sunshine Tree) although the flower production is never close to the latter.

Like most of the Cassia plants, the leaves are also host plants to some of the sulphur butterflies. So it is worth growing in a garden.
