Coral shower cassia is the largest of the flowering cassias in South Florida, and also the first to bloom. In late winter the tree will defoliate and shed all its leaves, and come March or April, from the axils of the old leaves rise fine sprays of bright-pink flowers, shading to pale peach and coral according to the amount of sunlight received. The flower spikes are more upright than the other cassias, whose bloom clusters tend to be either horizontal or cascading. The tree puts on a good show for several months in the spring; while not in bloom it makes a great shade tree due to its size and heft.
Cassias in general are unfussy trees: give them a spot in full sun, a well-drained soil, and water new transplants until they are established. Mature trees tolerate seasonal drought quite well.
