The common name Poinciana comes from the tree originally being placed in the genus of the same name. It has also been called flamboyant and, along with many other trees, flame tree. Magnificent shade tree for warm climates, flowers in clusters of fiery-red fan-shaped flowers spring and summer and impressively large pods. Grows to 10 metres. Often the branches low down so fantastic for climbing.
