Delonix regia Flame Tree seeds
Delonix regia Royal Poinciana Flame Tree
We are pleased to bring to you this native of Madagascar that is thought to be one of the top 5 most beautiful flowering trees in the world. We think it may be the most colorful flowering tree in the world as well. A perfect tropical that will do nicely as a standard from zone 9+ or grow as a deck or tropical. The small fern-like leave would make it a most unique bonsai specimen as well and will produce blooms as a bonsai at seven inches tall and about 2-3 years old.
- Other common names include Flamboyant Tree, Flame Tree, Mohur Tree and Red Flame
- Royal Poinciana is tolerant of some salty air and will grow in most soils, has no pests and requires little added food
- Royal Poinciana is deciduous for about 2 months in winter
- In May or June, red blooms appear and will typically hold for 4-10 weeks of intense color
