Spathodea campanulata - African Tulip Tree Flowers

Spathodea campanulata - African Tulip Tree Flowers (Spathodea campanulata - African Tulip Tree)

Unfortunately, this African Tulip tree was mostly in shade. It was spectacular...I had to get a photo. Take on Labor Day (Sept. 3, 2012) in Carlsbad, CA (Northern San Diego County).

Thanks! I've posted many African Tulip trees blooming recently. Many bloom in summer and fall; although, some trees can bloom any month of the year.

My little African Tulip tree blooms from: May - Feb.

That is a very long flowering period...

Yes, it does. Very large tree, if well cared for will bloom a very long time, also.

Yes, it's too bad the tree was in so much shade when I took the photo, though.

I thunk it makes the flower colour stand out more or were you after the colour glow of the flower.
