Delonix Regia - Madagascar Royal Flame Tree
This spectacular tree, found in the west of Madagascar, can grow up to 12m high but normally to around 5 or 6m tall and a spread of more than its height. It has fern like foliage with each leaf up to 40cm long. When in flower the tree appears to be red from its many large flowers that have around 8cm petals.
In areas with a marked dry season the tree will lose its leaves, but in wetter areas it will be evergreen.
An ideal candidate for a bonsai!
