- n. In Guam and the Philippine Islands, Agati grandiflora, a small tree of the bean family, of East Indian origin, having pinnate leaves, large papilionaceous flowers, and long, slender, sickle-shaped pods. The flowers, tender young leaves, and green pods are eaten as pot-herbs and salad, but are laxative if partaken of too freely. The leaves are used for forage, and in India the astringent bark is used as a remedy in smallpox and other eruptive fevers. See
