Reviving this thread

Thought I would revive this excellent thread begun by Theyyam.

ID's please. Thank you.

Both are unidentified balsams [Impatiens] of the balsaminaceae family.

Western Ghats endemics seen in the Anamallai range of Tamil Nadu.
This flowering seen in the month of December

Thanks Prince09 but C.nocturnum is a shrub. The flowers in my photo are from a tree. Thanks for trying anyway.

Does anyone know the name of this flowering tree? (Photographed in Kolkata.)

The image quality is poor because it was shot from a moving cab.

this is either a cassia siamea or a peltophorum tree. I think the former but hard to tell due to the blur. The latter has flowers more closely resembling roses and more bunches. the former is very common across north india as a roadside tree.

I think this one is different TD. Though from long distance it may look like yours cassia siamea. But the tree looks different , isn't it? It's all flowers no leaves! Hope to get this ID. oh, forgot to mention this snap was taken three weeks back ( Now the tree looks totally different with no flowers and all new green leaves) on a spring morning enroute Salt Lake sector V, Kolkata near New Town Bus stand.

Sorry for the quality as it was taken with a Mobile cam, during the stop at signal and in a hurry so that no big bus or something hinders the view during stoppage!

Going by the trunk as the flowers are not clear, it seems to be Delonix regia, or Gulmohor tree (yellow).
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day
