Dear members
I seek your help in the identification of this shrub-tree growing in Herbal garden in Delhi. It has bipinnate leaves with hardly 1-1.5 mm broad pinnules, so closely set that they look pinnate leaves. The flowers look like Calliandra, but in few flowered umbels. calyx is almost saucer shaped. 5 thick petals 6-8 mm long, are united for lower 1.5 mm or so. They are white inside, dark brown outside. Stamens and rachis are covered with reddish-brown pubescence.
