Schizolobium parahyba (CAESALPINIACEAE) Racehorse Tree, Yellow Jacaranda

Weeds to Whack

Schizolobium parahyba is a deciduous tree to 40 metres from tropical America. It is typical of secondary rainforests. To this point we think it has never been reported as naturalised in Australia. This specimen is behind Coles at The Gap.
