Everywhere around our region you will now see a display of magnificent yellow flowering trees. The annual season will draw to a close after this month so enjoy the colours will they last.

The golden shower tree is the national flower of Thailand; its yellow flowers symbolise Thai royalty. A flower festival, the Royal Flora Ratchaphruek, was named after the tree, which is most often called dok khuen or ratchaphruek in Thailand. The species is native to the Indian subcontinent and adjacent regions of Southeast Asia.

It ranges from southern Pakistan eastward throughout India to Myanmar and Thailand and south to Sri Lanka. As well as Thailand’s national flower it is also state flower of Kerala in India and important in herbal medicine. The golden shower tree is a mediumsized tree with fast growth. The leaves are deciduous, the fruit is a legume, with a pungent odor and containing several seeds. The tree has strong and very durable wood.
