Peltophorum pterocarpum - Yellow Poinciana


Peltophorum pterocarpum - Yellow Poinciana  (Peltophorum pterocarpum)

This is a Yellow Poinciana in Balboa Park, San Diego, CA. The picture was taken about three weeks ago. The trees were in full-bloom and the flower fragrance was like Jasmine/Gardenia combined. Incredible!

Does your tree bloom in Spring or Summer? These trees bloom in Summer here.

Yes, they are incredibly beautiful flowering tree! I'm surprised you don't see them there much...as they are native to tropical South America.
