Dear Aati ji,

Balkar ji,Prashant ji, Satish ji, Madhuri ji,
Thanks for the appreciation.
These had been posted by me earlier on our group.
Tanay had identified them as above so I had no reason for doubt.
Name given by the person in the nursery where picture was taken was
Jungle jalebi, in Muscat, Oman.
Kindly confirm id or let us try to find the right one.
I was also confused earlier how two diff pictures could have the same
name.
Thanks for pointing out.

Tanay ji will you please clarify whether you still think that the flowers in the picture belong to Pithecellobium dulce?

Hi Satish Ji and Aarti Ji.
I don't think these are flowers of  Pithecellobium dulce. If had had identified this as the 
P. dulce previously then its my mistake pardon me for it or may be its a result of the
thread mix up.
Thanks
Tanay

Dear all,
I got this identified by Shri Murudkar, a very senior person, in this field a while ago.
This is Haematoxylum campechianum.
Common names Blood Wood Tree, Campeche, Logwood.

Thanks Aarti ji for showing this important plant, a source of important staining agent haematoxylin used in botanical preparations. Seeing it for the first time.

Sir ji,
I did not know it was such an important plant.
Recently I have photographed the pods.
Will post soon.
Can you change the wrong subject line of the post?
Regards,
Aarti
