Terratoonie:

Thank you! It's my favorite flowering tree! : > )

Your name gave me a definite clue to that... Lol.

Terratoonie:

You caught me! LOL!

Yes, the love of Delonix regia, hence my screen name. ; > )

I'm not surprised it is your favourite.
Does the blossom last a long time ?...
or does one group of flowers die at the same time another blooms ?

Terratoonie:

I'm guessing the flowers last 3 - 6 days before they drop...depending on weather conditions. It has been very hot here...generally the flowers need the heat for a good bloom, however, high heat also shortens the life of most flowers. If that makes sense. : > )

Yes, hot weather shortens the time of bloom for some flowers in the UK...so it does make sense... :o)

Brilliant flowering tree !
Delonix...our poinsettia is doing really well.Covered in healthy new green bracts,and bushing out nicely.Keep it on the dry side then give it a good soak,which it seems to like ! So end of September will be following your previous instructions...into the dark ! Am really surprised to have got this far with it...previous ones have just bit the dust in January ! Thanks again for your advice !

Terratoonie:

Hot weather shortens the flower's life especially when temps. go above 90 degrees F. / 33 degrees C. It has been hotter than that for the last month here.

Bonkersbon:

Thanks! I'm glad to hear your Poinsettia is doing well!
I'm sure you are going to successfully bloom it in Fall.

Thanks...fingers crossed !

Not been quite that hot here in recent weeks...Lol.

Terratoonie:

You're so lucky! We've had horrible hot and humid weather! However, tonight it's finally getting back to normal temps. YAY! Although it's only suppose to last 3 days...then the hot and humid returns again! Oh well, then I'll be in hotter and more humid Hawaii. LOL!
