Thank you for your interest. This beautiful specimen is a Royal Poinciana. When we built this house 12 years ago it was determined to make this existing tree the focal point of the front yard. During the summer when the tree blooms all the upstairs windows get a view of the beautiful flowers. The flowers were the fullest this summer than any previous year so we were thrilled with the tremendous color. Note the orange hue on the gravel driveway from the fallen flowers. In 2006 hurricane Wilma did a lot of damage to the major limbs. We worked very hard to get it back to good health and this picture shows the results.
