The spectacular flowering of the red flamboyant
Originally from Madagascar, the red flamboyant - Delonix regia, meaning clearly visible claw in Greek - is an ornamental tree now widespread throughout the tropical zone. It is easily identified by its wide crown covered in scarlet red flowers and its large, leathery brown seed pods. Its flowers are composed of five petals, four of a solid red and the fifth dotted with white. They form clusters about 0.5 ft (15 cm) wide which actually look like claws. They only appear on trees that are at least ten years old.
