Jamaican Plant :: ROYAL POINCIANA TREE (Delonix regia) is native to Madagascar. The brilliant red blooms of this tree are so spectacular, it’s also known in some Latin American countries as the Flamboyant or Flame tree. If you have a large yard, the Poinciana is a wonderful shade tree with its unique feathery leaves. The Poinciana is perfect for Jamaica’s subtropical coastal area: it is drought and salt tolerant. It usually blooms between May and July. | Photo taken at Goldeneye Hotel & Resort
