Peltophorum pterocarpum - Yellow Poinciana

Peltophorum pterocarpum - Yellow Poinciana (Peltophorum pterocarpum - Yellow Poinciana)

For some reason the Yellow Poincianas have not bloomed in San Diego for two years. It could be due to the strange weather we've had over these last couple of years. Photo taken Oct. 15, 2011. This is what it looks like in bloom:
