Flamboyant Trees...




Flamboyant Trees
Delonix regia is a species of flowering plant in the family Fabaceae, family Caesalpinioideae. It is noted for its fern-like leaves and flamboyant display of flowers. In many tropical parts of the world it is grown as an ornamental tree and in English it is given the name Royal Poinciana or Flamboyant. It is also one of several trees known as Flame tree. Delonix regia is endemic to the western forests of Madagascar, but has been introduced into tropical and sub-tropical regions worldwide. It also grows throughout southern Brazil, with ornamental trees in Rio Grande do Sul.
A Delonix regia (anteriormente, Poinciana regia Boj.), também conhecida por flor-do-paraíso, pau-rosa, flamboyant,flamboiaiã, flamboaiã e acácia-rubra, é uma árvore da família das leguminosas (Fabaceae). É nativa da ilha deMadagáscar e da África tropical.
Adaptou-se muito bem em toda a América tropical, sendo muito popularizada nas ilhas do Caribe. No Brasil, é usada na arborização de ruas e praças.

  21. Poncianas!
    Beautiful, beautiful trees but too cold for them here on our little mountain.
    But just 1.5hrs away in Brisbane our state capital they are everywhere.
    They give the city a feeling of graciousness.
    I love them.

  25. Ah, these glorious Poinciana trees grow here too Sonia - everywhere! and I never go near one - as a child we had one in our front yard and that is when we learned I am highly allergic to the leaves. I come out in the most horrendous HIVES!!! So very pretty to look at.................................... from afar for me!! :)
