Inner Beauty of Flamboyant:-

Royal Poinciana or Flamboyant tree’s vivid red/vermilion/orange/yellow flowers and bright green foliage make it an exceptionally striking sight.

Delonix regia is a species of flowering plant from the Fabaceae family,Caesalpinioideae subfamilia, noted for its fern-like leaves and flamboyant display of flowers. In many tropical parts of countries around the world it is grown as an ornamental tree and in English it is given the name Royal Poinciana or Flamboyant. It is also one of several trees known as Flame tree.

In India it is known as Gulmohar (Hindi and Urdu -‘Gul’ means ‘Flower’ and ‘Mohr’ is ‘Peacock’) thus the name suggests a spectacular show of color, like the extraordinary colors of a peacock’s tail.
