What are shower trees?

Shower trees are large flowering trees that bloom during the Summer here in Honolulu. Amazingly, they are in the same family of plants as beans. Shower trees are not native to Hawaii but many hybrids like the "Rainbow Shower Tree" do not produce very few or no seeds. Even when shower trees do produce seeds, the larger animals that are known to disperse them do not live in Hawaii so these trees are unlikely to become invasive. They have been planted around Oahu and provide much needed shade and beauty wherever they grow.
