/peuh dowk"/, n.

* * *

      any of several species of tropical trees of the genus Pterocarpus in the family Fabaceae. Padauks of the Indo-Malaysia region have a tendency to be larger than related species elsewhere. They are highly prized as shade trees and for their red or reddish brown wood. The blood-red sap is used commercially; a red dyewood, “Red Saunders,” which is obtained from the padauk, was formerly exported in quantity from India.
