Hi Delonix1, Welcome, hope you enjoy it here.

The soonest these trees can bloom in Coastal Southern California would be maybe late May or early June (depending how warm the weather is). I've heard in the low deserts of California and Arizona they bloom early, March or April. This is because they can have hot 100 degree F. (38 degree C) temperatures early in spring or anytime of the year.
