Family: Fabaceae (Leguminosae)
The Angsana is a large deciduous tree that grows up to 40m tall. It can be recognised by its drooping, dome-shaped crown.
This tree has yellow flowers that are faintly fragrant. They bloom for only a day, then rain down the next morning, creating yellow carpets on the ground. The fruits are flattened pods with disc-like papery wings.
An Angsana Heritage Tree can be found on the road verge of Upper Serangoon Road, between Woodleigh Park and Woodleigh Close. With its girth of 7.7m, it is one of the largest roadside trees in Singapore. It is also about 60 years old.
