Royal Poinciana Tree in Boca Raton FL
This photo shows a Royal Poincianaia tree in bloom in Boca Raton FL. I see these trees all year. I drive past all the time. We are lucky to have an abundance of tropical foliage in Boca Raton. It is only in the late spring and summer when the trees are in bloom with their bright orange-red blossoms that I really notice them. Seems strange because they are so magnificent.
Some interesting facts about the Royal Poinciana: It is known as Delonix Regia - regia meaning royal and that is definitely what this tree is. They are also known as Flamboyant trees or Flame trees native to Madagascar but are found in the Caribbean and south Florida.
These trees are too big for an average yard as they can grow to 40 or 50 feet tall and almost as wide. They need large green space to showcase their magnificence.
If you are in Boca Raton FL from May through July, you will likely see a Royal Poinciana tree. Stop a moment and enjoy.
