AND the reason its neither Albizzia odoratissima nor Calliandra
surinamensis, is superficially the same: both of these have larger
leaflets... almost as big as distal end of a lady's pinky finger....
I am sure there is a botanical key .....
BUT this my non-botanists quick observation...
AND PLEASE TELL ME: IS DAPOLI a different name for DAPURI? where
there used to be a botanical garden established in about 1837-1838 by
Alexander Gibson??? So are DAPOLI and DAPURI SAME or different....
I wonder if it has medicineal properties...
may be Dr. Pankaj Oudhia can tell us...
Thanks USha di.

Some earlier relevant feedback:
“ this seems to be mimosa I saw everyday in summer in the midwest...o ften considered a nuisance, though a beautiful nuisance... since its seeds anywhere from its profusely produced seeds.... I knew this was not my beloved Siris tree from back home in Calcutta since the leaf pattern is different.... This tree, as in your picture and in the USA midwest, very small leaflets,(tiny tiny) almost as small as the delonix regia leaflets.... THIS TREE is called the silk tree from the silky flowers, and botanically *Albizia * julibrissin*...” from Usha di.
“Can it would be A. julibrissin var. rosea
“Yes H S
My first reaction was A. julibrissin only as I have seen several trees in Kashmir and California, the flowers being distinctive but was dissuaded by the description in Hortus Third. Now after going through eFlora of Pakistan according to which pinnae number could varry from 4-15 pairs and pinnules 20-30 pairs.
I think we can settle with Albizia julibrissin var. rosea
