Why are they called rain trees?
When they were first planted in West Bengal, passersby encountered gentle drizzles whenever they passed under the trees, even though it was bone dry outside.

Every evening, the leaves fold into themselves and the trees go to sleep until dawn the next day, giving them their Tamil names — thoongumoonji maram sleepyhead trees.Starting plants from seed to sell!

In April and May, the trees burst into splendorous bloom, with feathery pink flowers dotting their canopies like miniature powder puffs. The powderpuffs are bee magnets, and once pollinated, drop off to form large sticky pods bearing dozens of viable seeds.
