   This member of the Fabaceae family was given this name by Capuron in 1968. It is from Madagascar, getting up to seven meters high and 80 centimetres in diameter. The large flowers are white to apricot-yellow, and it can only be reproduced by seeds and perhaps cuttings..

 I got some from Skogstorp in 2003. Couldn't get them to grow my self, but Maarten van Thiel could - as usual.

Former a Caesalpiniaceae. Now, it's a sub-family to the Fabaceae: Caesalpinioideae.
