Experts say there are two kinds :-
1. Tecoma stans
2. Tecoma gaudichaudii (Syn. T. castanifolia)
They are difficult to distinguish,. Leaf of T.stans is compound while the other's is simple. So the leaf acquires importance. About a fortnight back the tree was in full bloom with bright yellow flowers. It was a sight to see ! I wonder why this is not used as ornamental avenue tree as the Queen's Flower or Pride of India (Lagerstroemia speciosa) adorns the IITB Powai campus.
