Oooh, I've been dying to say something like this to Delonix one day!

The leaves on that one look rather tiddly!
I'll post a photo of our local specimen to show the difference!!

The difference between your local specimen and this one is: this one is growing outside and is 30ft/10m tall.

Many of the leaves on this plant need to be cut off...however, with this being said, this is how they grow in nature.

That's true, and ours never has to contend with wind either.

The leaves still rip even if there's very little wind.
