Peltophorum africanum - African Wattle

Peltophorum africanum - African Wattle (Peltophorum africanum - African Wattle)

This native of Zimbabwe, Africa grows very well here. There's several trees blooming at the San Diego Zoo right now. Photo taken Sept. 9, 2010.

Looks like close kin to a Paloverde or a Caesalpinia, Delonix.

Actually, the flowers look different...even though it's in the same family (Fabaceae or Leguminosae). Peltophorum is a much more spectacular, beautiful flowering tree!

Check out my pics of blooming Peltophorum pterocarpum...they're very impressive! : > )

Hmm. Leaves like an Acacia, but the flowers of a Senna subfamily member. OK!
