End-of-Spring downunder - Delonix regia in bloom.

End-of-Spring downunder - Delonix regia in bloom. (Delonix regia (Acacia Roja))

Thought I'd show a close-up of the beautiful flowers on the poinciana. I just love the little white petals amongst the red. This photo also shows the splashes of yellow on the red petals.

Bernieh:

Wonderful shot! Of course, my favorite!

Do you ever see Delonix regia 'Flavida' / 'Flava' growing
there where you live? I've never seen one growing here.
I've read very few are being introduced into California from
Australia...and they are extremely expensive. They are
propagated by cutting-grown or air-layered only.

Yes I have seen it up here Andy, but it's not as common as the red. I drive past a huge one on the way to work and right now it's a beautiful sight. Will have to try and get a photo.

You're lucky! It would be great to see a photo!

I saw several when I was in Hawaii for my family
reunion back in August...however, I never got a
pic of one. They were always in yard were I could
get a photo.
