Golden Shower

Golden shower

For its common name, this must be the perfect tree for the Gorean and their relatives: the Golden Shower, but it isn’t exactly so. The Cassia fistula, as it is scientifically known (or caña fístola, as it is called where I grew up), is really a beautiful RL tree, that produces cascading  racemes of very intense yellow flowers, sometimes with a creamy tinge. Its fruit is a long tubular pod that contains the seeds arranged in a single row and cushioned by a somewhat stinky pulp. Most parts of the tree (leaves, flowers, bark, pulp and seeds) have some medical uses to treat a variety of human maladies such as the flu, measles, cough and other respiratory conditions, chicken pox, constipation, gallstones, skin and kidney diseases, bumps and bruises, insect stings, and some people even claim tumors and the dreadful cancer. Sounds like a miracle plant, isn’t it? Now, 3D Trees brings this magnificent tree to your SL garden.
