Description:
Scarce tree that reaches a height of 10 meters, with yellow flowers and long leaves. The fruit is a pod. There are considered to be two types, both of which grow alongside rivers. This tree is of major importance for the Zapotecs of the isthmus, because it is placed at the door of the deceased for the nine days, a mass or on the Day of the Dead. The same is also done for weddings, because of the pleasant smell of the leaves.
