鳳凰木 ( Flame of the Forest, Royal Poinciana )

Delonix regia

Description:

It's well known for its flame liking flowers.In Taiwan(Lat: 23.0),Its flowers begin to bloom in May and can last to July. The trees have even-pinnately compound leaves.

Notes:

Living in the tropics,There're always plenty of colorful flowers in blossom throughout a year.One of my favorite is 鳳凰木 ( Flame of the Forest).We call it 鳳凰木 because its flower is like 鳳凰,which is a creature in legends,kind of like phoenixes .And you can actually use its petals to form the shape of 鳳凰!
