- West Indian term for rain tree
- ‘SAMANEA SAMAN is a truly noble tropical tree. It has a sturdy, smooth, pale grey trunk mostly divided near its base into a few hefty branches that grow almost horizontally to support its monstrous parasol canopy.’
- ‘We hiked up steep switchbacks between ancient samaan and banyan trees and clambered down gullies where razor grass spikes up high along the trail and mango and cashew trees form a fruitful canopy.’
