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

My African Tulip tree which is loaded with flower buds started blooming on April 1st this year. Typically it starts to bloom the first week in May. Photo taken April 3rd, 2013 with my iPhone.

So your a month early, and we are at least a month late......

African Tulip trees are strange trees. They can bloom any month of the year. I've seen them in full bloom every month of the year here in San Diego. It just depends on the cycle of the tree and weather conditions.

My tree is young and it's getting pretty large. I'm guessing it'll start blooming earlier from now on. It also blooms almost all year.

That must be lovely for you to have so much colour...

Yes, we're very lucky in San Diego. We have so many different subtropical/tropical flowering trees which bloom all year.
