Peltophorum ferrugineum- and a sunbird .Also called copper pod for the
copper coloured pods which remains for a very long time attached to
the trees. Often called Radhachura ( erroneoisly) in Bengal.

I had a query:
What does Krishnachura in Bengali represent?
Caeselpinia Pulcherima or Delonix Regia (gulmohar)?
If Radhachura represents peltophorum ferrugineum erroneously then what is its correct representation?

In Hindi-speaking areas the yellow flowered caesalpinia pulcherrima is known as Radhachuda and the red-orange-yellow one is known as Krishnachuda. I dont know AND i STAND CORRECTED, but I thought that peltophorum is not native to this part of the country.
