In mid-May, the Cassia fistula, commonly known as pudding-pipe trees, are in full bloom.

Wandering across Zhongshan, one can see bunches of golden flowers dropping from pudding-pipe trees along streets, just like golden rain coming down from time to time.

The Cassia fistula, 15 meters in maximum height, is a deciduous tree with slender branches and gray bark. It grows in southern and southwestern China.


The pudding-pipe tree is covered with golden flowers, just like a waterfall.

In addition to golden flowers like golden chains, the pudding-pipe tree also has sausage-like pods.

The flowers of the pudding-pipe tree look like wind chimes hanging from the branches.
