Poinciana (Delonix Regia)

Poinciana
Delonix Regia flower

The poinciana is a semi-deciduous tropical flowering tree usually growing up to 10 metres tall with a wide-spreading growth habit of up to 10 metres and smooth grey bark.

 

The bright green fern-like leaves shed in spring and the brilliant, colourful, red-orange flowers usually bloom in midsummer. This tree is drought and salt tolerant, growing best in well-drained, fertile soil and positioned in full sun with plenty of room. The seed pods are pollinated by birds and insects.

 

These trees are a good choice for gardens with room and are often planted as street trees for their attractiveness and shade.
