Schotia brachypetala - Parrot Tree


Schotia brachypetala - Parrot Tree (Schotia brachypetala - Parrot Tree)

Parrot tree has beautiful scarlet flowers...it grow fairly slowly to about 25 feet tall. I've read it can grow to more than 60 feet (20 meters) tall...however, I've never seen one any where near that size in California.

Thanks for the comment. I always thought that this tree bloomed in Summer not Fall or Winter.
