Adenanthera pavonina

Red Sandalwood,   E
Madatiya                S

Red Sandalwood is a timber tree. This plant is found in the wet zone in srilanka . flower grows in dense drooping rat-tail flower heads, almost like cat-tail flower-heads. Fruits are curved, hanging, green pods that turn brown, coil up and split open as they ripen to reveal small bright red seeds. and rosaries... Children love the hard red seeds and few can resist collecting the brightly coloured seeds usually littered under the tree.
