Cassia javanica subsp. bartonii

Primary tabs

Cassia javanica subsp. bartonii


Similar to subsp. renigera but stipules only half as broad and the petals gradually narrowed towards the base.


Bougainville Island present, C present, E present, Guadalcanal Island present
New Guinea (C and E); by Verdcourt (I.e.) also reported from Bougainville Island and perhaps from Guadalcanal Island


The petals are pink or pinkish white. De Wit (1956) stated that when better material becomes available, Cassia bartonii (C. javanica subsp. bartonii) might prove to be identical with C. renigera (= C. javanica subsp. renigera).
