: I am seeking info and possible location I might purchase a tree I only know for certain is known by raintree. Another source suggested it might be called Albizzia Saman, a relative of the Cassia and Mimosa. This tree drips water from its own limbs onto its own roots at dusk every evening, it was not a very large tree at that time, but Im not sure how big they grow. Any information for name, naturalized area, nursery that would know, etc. would be greatly appriciated
These are also known as Monkeypod Tree or samanea saman. Their Hawaiian name is 'ohai. They are tropical
I have seeds available for sale, but I can't ship plants.
Maren in Hawaii.
