Abstract:
The caption on the back reads: "The 'Golden Shower' tree, native of the Orient, is widely planted on the Isthmus of Panama lending its splendor to many of the Canal Zone streets such as the Balboa Prado. It is a fast growing tree but seldom lives longer than 15 years. Natives use the pulp of the long cylindrical pods for medicinal purposes and call the tree 'Canafistula.'"
