Yours is lovely Delonix, wide mouthed and so yellow. These are such a pleasure.

Thanks! This plant receives quite a bit of hot full sun
without any ill-effect. I think that's the reason why
it blooms all year (the full sun).

It does need a lot of light to keep blooming. No trouble where you are. :-)

Yes, November is the sunniest month statistically
in San Diego...many of the subtropical/tropical trees
are starting to bloom now.
