In summer and fall, Caesalpinia granadillo is decorated with showy yellow blossoms. Planted as an ornamental street tree in tropical regions for its beautiful bark and stately appearance. Makes a wonderful shade tree, the 35-foot-high tree clothed with finely textured, pinnately compound, evergreen leaves. The bark is also quite striking, peeling off in thin strips showing an unusual green and gray mottling. The tree is usually found growing with several trunks originating from the lower four feet of the tree. This feature, along with the unusual bark traits, make this a highly desirable tree for planting in almost any landscape.
