Poinciana regina syn Delonix regina

Poinciana regina syn Delonix regina 
 The Royal Poinciana Tree

This broad spreading tree from Madagascar with its soft ferny foliage is one of the most perfect summer shade trees under which you can really relax and chill out. It is strictly tropical but will grow all along the warm east coast as far south as Nowra., though the flamboyant scarlet orange flowers are at their best from Brisbane to the north. A specimen of it I admire in a local garden has reached a respectable 6 metres and is very graceful with the leaf fronds waving like cool fans in the slightest breeze.
