Ingá dàgua in bloom


The so called ingá dàgua trees are now in bloom. They are located in the ancient creek bed we call "a baixada". In spite of the fact that they are a show in themselves, nobody really knows the name of this tree. Over the years, I found one local person who ventured to say that were called ingá dàgua. So be it, that's what I call the tree to this day. I'm sure that someone will eventually identify the tree. It's a question of time. In the meanwhile, they're showing off with all those beautiful flowers.

(FABACEAE-MIMOSOIDEAE)

Probably the genus Zygia.
