Delonix regia - Royal Poinciana, Flamboyant


Delonix regia - Royal Poinciana, Flamboyant  (Delonix regia - Royal Poinciana, Flamboyant)

A close up of the buds and flowers. Unfortunately, this tree is extremely difficult to photograph...as its flowers are so brilliant red, many cameras cannot capture its true color. Photo taken July 28, 2011.

I can see why this is one of your favourites!
Understand the problem with reds too - isn't it strange how different the results can be on reds that are the same to the human eye too.

Yes, this tree is so, so spectacular in person. We're so lucky to have them growing in San Diego...as for most of California this tree is just too tropical to grow as a landscape tree. They are becoming more popular over the last 10 yeas (in southern Cal). Many people still feel, though, this tree cannot be grown anywhere in s. California. (but I prove them wrong. lol! )

Yes, it's an incredible flowering tree. It's considered by many "the most beautiful flowering tree in the world".
