This native of Asia has been widely cultivated in many parts of the world for its showy, rich purple flowers. Also called the Empress Tree, the lightweight wood is much sought after in the Orient for cabinet-making. The wood is lighter in weight than Swamp Ash, has decent acoustic properties, and as such is excellent for solid-body guitars.
