Spathodea campanulata, commonly known as the African tuliptree, is a stunning flowering tree native to tropical dry forests of Africa. Its showy reddish-orange or crimson (rarely yellow) flowers are cup-shaped and attract many species of birds. In Neotropical gardens and parks, their nectar is popular with many hummingbirds. The tree is also used as nesting by many hole-building birds such as barbets. The flower bud is ampule-shaped and contains water, often used by children who play with its ability to squirt the water. The sap sometimes stains yellow on fingers and clothes. However, Spathodea campanulata is also considered one of the "World's Worst" invaders and has become an invasive species in many tropical areas such as Hawaii, Queensland (Australia), and Sri Lanka. Enjoy this gorgeous tree as an ornamental in the tropics but be mindful of its potential invasiveness.
