This tree flowers in the dry heat of May in Northern India. Here is a link to a picture of a tree in my garden http://www.growsonyou.com/photo/slideshow/152563-cassia-fistula-2-jpg/member/mochiseki
Its quite a common tree in our cities

There's many Cassia species grown here, however, Cassia leptophylla - Gold Medallion tree seems to be the one everyone wants. It's very widely grown as a landscape and street tree here.

It is one of my best ornamental plant.Here also it is generally grown as street tree along with Gulmohar ( Delonix ).I have one but it has never bloomed yet.It is old enough.What could be the possible cause?

Camillia:

It's a tropical tree...it should bloom easily in your climate.
Maybe you can fertilize it with high bloom fertilizer...it should force bloom it.

Camillia:

I forgot to add: this tree can bloom here at a young age and small height of only 3ft/1m tall.

Yeah Delonix, I have seen them blooming at a small age but mine one is exceptional.I will try high bloom fertilizer.Thanks.
