The world's most colorful tree, another great tree native to Madagascar. Known in other parts of the world as flamboyant tree, flame tree, peacock flower.

For several month in spring and summer, tree is covered with exuberant clusters of flame-red flowers, 4-5 in across. Even up close the individual flowers are striking: they have four spoon shaped spreading scarlet or orange-red petals about 3 in long, and one upright slightly larger petal which is marked with yellow and white. Royal poinciana gets 30-40 ft tall, but its elegant wide-spreading umbrella-like canopy can be wider than its height. Royal poinciana is a semi-evergreen tree. Even the leaves are elegant: they are lacy and fernlike, twice-pinnate, and 12-20 in long with 20-40 pairs of primary leaflets.  This is a great shade tree, ideal for large front yard, or as a central feature in your back yard.  Offered in large 25 Gallons pots or 24" boxes.
