Hi, came across this and wondered if anyone could cast any light on it? Apparent!y known locally as a Catalonia tree, but no other details.

It is a Caesalpinia  gillesii, Bird of Paradise tree. Comes from S. America.

Thank you very much Petrea. That's it exactly. Seeds easily available, even on EBay!
