    Does Leucaena leucocephala have a common name? (something that's easier to remember?)

    OK I found the following:- Leucaena or lead tree or white popinac, there were more names for different countries, but that saves you saying the whole lot anyway. Hope I helped

    That's um...kind of overwhelming. Pick a language. Thanks folks. Think I'll work on leucaena for a while. See if I can learn to spell it consistently.
