Botanical name: Peltophorum pterocarpum Family: Caesalpiniaceae (Gulmohar family)
Synonyms: Caesalpinia inermis, Caesalpinia arborea
Copperpod is sometime also called yellow flame tree, because of the resemblance of its fern-like leaves to that of Gulmohar. It is a very handsome tree with its spreading crown of many branches consisting of feathery mimosa like leaves and abundance of bright yellow blooms. When the copper-red seedpods cover the tree in profusion it is a wonderful sight. Thus the tree is much cultivated as an ornamental and is often planted alternately with Gul Mohur. It is easily propagated by seeds and the timber is used for cabinet work. The copper-pod is a native of Indo-China to North Australia.
