Mimosa xylocarpa Roxb.
Description and properties
This perennial tree is known as Pyinkado (Burmese: ပျဉ်းကတိုး) in Burma, Cam xe in Vietnam, Sokram (សុក្រម) in Cambodia and Jamba in Karnataka (India). It has also been planted in certain parts of East Africa. It is very conspicuous in the flowering season owing to its bright yellow flowers.
Xylia xylocarpa (Roxb.) Taub. var. kerrii (Craib & Hutch.) is known as daeng (แดง) in the Thai language. This species, naturally adapted to conditions in Thailand, is used in reafforestation at certain denuded or environmentally degraded areas of the country.
