WHOLESALE POINCIANA NURSERIES
If you have been to Brisbane in the summer then you will be familiar with the Poinciana tree (Delonix regia).
With a broad spreading habit it makes an excellent small shade tree in warmer climates. Masses of red flowers in summer are the main attraction besides the shade.
Best planted in an open position where they have room to spread and develop a natural graceful habit. They do need a little room to spread so are best in larger gardens.
A few varieties including orange and yellow flowering types are available, however it is the red varieties that are the most common.
Widely used in Queensland as a shade tree the Poinciana ( Delonix regia) has a wide spreading canopy and is covered in crimson red flowers during summer months.
In cultivation a height of around 8m can be expected, although often smaller. A crown of around 6m and a growth rate that is regarded as medium in good conditions.
