Delonix regia , also known as Flame Tree, Royal Poinciana & Flamboyant, is an exceptionally striking sight with its vivid red, vermilion, orange, and yellow flowers. Native to Madagascar, it is found in the dry deciduous forests, where it is endangered. However, it is widely cultivated worldwide for its ornamental value and use as a shade tree in tropical conditions. Its fern-like, doubly compound leaves provide dense foliage and full shade. In areas with a marked dry season, it sheds its leaves during the drought, but in other areas, it is virtually evergreen. Flame Tree is much loved in the Caribbean and is featured in many Puerto Rican paintings. It can also be found in The Bahamas, Hawaii, and Israel, among other places. It is the national flower of St. Kitts and Nevis and is regarded as naturalized in many of the locations where it is grown. The tree blooms from May to September and is propagated by seeds or semi-hardwood cuttings. Delonix regia holds cultural significance in various parts of the world, including India, where it is believed that Jesus’ blood was shed over the flowers of the tree, and in the song "Poinciana," inspired by the presence of this tree in Cuba.
