It is a small tree, up to 6 m. high, with bipinnate leaves and extremely small leaflets. Flowers are showy, with tufts of numerous long, red stamens
  • pods are flat and thin, about 10 cm. long. C. surinamensis, aka C. haematocephala, is less common and is used primarily as a decorative plant
  • stamens in the ball shaped inflorescence are white below, red on top.
