The leaves look like my Cassia Javonica. Pics I've seen show long draping yellow flower clusters.

I got seeds from a GW'er back in 2010, but my tree hasn't gotten very big and no flowers yet.

How old is yours?

I thought cassia javanica was pink? Is there a yellow variety?

I would have said cassia fistula for this one.

I vote cassia fistula. I raised one from seed in the past on another property. The mom is at one of the public libraries in Sarasota and is spectacular in full bloom! It's a keeper, Mark. Hope it gets more cold resistant as it gets bigger.

Right you are, guys! You passed the test . . .

Actually, I was thinking FISTULA but my fingers typed javanica. I got seeds from both and I just love to say Javanica.

It is Cassia fistula. It is semi tender when young but gets hardier as it gets older. Cassia javanica is a tender tree.
