(A) Inflorescences: raceme (a flower cluster with the separate flowers attached by short equal stalks at equal distances along a central stem) and indeterminate (flowers at the base of the central stem develop first) (B) Showing the typical Fabaceae flower with keel formed by fusion of 2 petals, 2 wings, and 1 outermost banner (C) Diadelphous flower with the 10th stamen clearly distinct from the other 9 that fused into a bundle (D) Closer look at the 10 stamens surrounding a central pistil (P) Photo taken on 2-Apr-2018 Species identity suggested by the label next to the tree haha.
Nice work with clear display and labelling, esp. for the diadelphous androecium. For more information about this flower,
Yet to play safe, pls label with the genus name only, or pls describe how you identified the species as several flowers under the same genus look quite similar. For the inflorescence, it is better to describe it as raceme like, as some reference books described it as pseudoraceme.
Coral tree is a cultivated species for ornamental purpose. The flowering period is May to Sept
