  jamajurih (Rain Tree)

 

Thailand

The Rain Tree, is a large tree known in Thai as jamajurih, and which bears tasseled white-pink flowers, that grow upright, that is until they start to wither, as in the photo below.

 

The flowers and leaves are very similar to those of the Calliandra surinamensis, an up-to five meter tall shrub of the same family (fig.). See also List of Thai Botanical Names.
