Common name: Flame Tree, Royal Poinciana
While I hate the heat in summer, I love the trees that bloom this season. The yellow Laburnum, the purple Jacaranda and the red/orange Gulmohar.
Native to Madagascar, this tree is now seen almost all over India. All through the months of May-June one finds the tree covered with clusters of bright orange flowers along with its delicate green fern leaves.
Botanical name: Delonix regia Family: Caesalpiniaceae (Gulmohar family)
