(Rainbow-shower-tree)

So floriferous and colorful when in bloom, the rainbow-shower may seem unnatural to the eye. The yellow and pink blossoms look cheerful and festive. This hybrid was created in Hawaii in the mid-20th century, and is the result of crossing golden shower (Cassia fistula) with appleblossom cassia (C. javanica). Its species name honors Hawaiian botanist Marie C. Neal. In 1965, the city of Honolulu designated the rainbow-shower its official tree.

This is the chestnut popular worldwide for roasting and eating. It likely was dubbed "Spanish chestnut" because Englishmen regarding nuts imported from Spain had the best flavor.
