Thanks! There's another bud developing on my other litte tree.
Most of the large trees in the ground here are towards the end
of thier bloom cycle...however, I've seen them bloom every
month of the year. It just depends on the weather.

Mine is growing in a particularly dry area of my property ... so it usually only blooms once or twice a year. Again, depending on the weather - whether it's drought all year or if we get monsoonal rain in summer.

Beautiful flower ... and thanks to you I discovered the name of this plant that I photographed the island of Mauritius

Thanks! I have posted many large African Tulips trees
in the past.

I'm sure drought conditions make a huge difference.
All the trees grown here must have some supplemental
water to look good...or they look pretty ratty.
