Leaflets, up to odoratossima pairs, seesile to subsessile, albiziz oblong, Flowers sessile, corolla white, pods purplish green to brown, seeds looks Pinnae pairs; leaflets pairs; leaflet broader than 6 mm is A. Albizia chinensis never has less than 20 pairs of leaflets, here I count pairs. Also leaflets are very narrow and very closely set. I have heard about some other species also I am a little disturbed.
What is the aim of this site? Is our site only an identification parade? Take the case of Albizia. Wikipedia lists not less than varieties of albizia.
In addition there were 34 varieties which have now been shifted to other trees. I am sorry if I am saying something which may not be liked by many of our friends.
But what is the objective of this site? Incidentaly albizia procera is tall albizia, probably very common in India, but the more common probably is albizia lebbeck Kala siris. Kala and Safed is because of the colour of the bark. This has the speciality of tolerating very cold weather as well. Maybe because of sililarity of flowers or bark? But my favourite is the raintree Albizia saman with pink powder puff flowers and a spreading lovely crown.
I dont know whether it still survives there. Sory for my outburst again. Several mails on Albizia appeared in the last few days. It is the flowering season of the Albizias, I would have liked to see some photographs, particularly to distinguish one from the other.

An Avenue tree and shade tree, perhaps the most common of the species. All Albizia flowers attract a number of birds with pointed ooratissima, as flower peckers, humming birds.
About two centuries back Alexander von Humboldt in his famous S. America Expedition found a rain tree in Odoratizsima in which he took much fascination, It had a crown with circumference slightly less than two hundred meters, and he was told that the plant was odogatissima old.
This is a point which disturbs me over the time.
In my village I was very much attached to a desi siris plant of huge size, which I identified as lebbek. In interior villages of Bengal, you find plants mainly with pink flowers.
In Calcutta you may find a number of siris wth greenish white flowers, often identified as lebbek. I am attaching a lebbek photo from web site, showing pinkish flowers. However, the possibility can not be denied there may be two different vaieties of lebbek.
To add confusion rain tree has also two flower types. It looks very close to Albizia odoratissima. Would love to know the differences. Let me investigate further. I am also agreed with This might be Albizia odoratissima. The two genera are differentiated on the basis of flowers being in spikes in Falcataria and small heads in Albiziaalthough spikes are not generally clear in photographs. In the last photograph three pairs of pinnae are clearly seen. Sir all your observations are heading towards A.
It is Albizia odoratissima only, In A. It does not look like F. Mimosceae Albizia odoratissima perhaps Yes strong possibility of Albizia odoratissima. No flowers, only pods.
