Delonix regia.
Its summer time and one can see this tree in bloom all over Bangalore. This one I captured last year.
About the tree: from Wikipedia:

Delonix regia is a species of flowering plant in the family Fabaceae, subfamily Caesalpinioideae. It is noted for its fern-like leaves and flamboyant display of flowers. In many tropical parts of the world it is grown as an ornamental tree and in English it is given the name Royal Poinciana or Flamboyant. It is also one of several trees known as Flame tree.

In India it is known as Gulmohar گل مور or گلمور (Hindi and Urdu -‘Gul’ means ‘Flower’ and ‘Mohr’ is 'coin or stamp'.also "Gul" means flower and "Mor" means "Peacock". which seems to be most close to physical appearance and beauty of this tree.It is also known there as Krishnachura (Bengali: 'crown of the Lord Krishna). In Vietnamese it is known as Phượng vĩ (means "Phoenix's Tail) (Vietnamese), Malinche, and Tabachine.[1] In Guatemala, Antigua Guatemala, it is known as "Llama del Bosque". In Khmer, the tree and the flower is known collectively as "Peacock" or ដើម (tree) or ផ្កា (flower) «ក្ងោក»។

This species was previously placed in the genus Poinciana, named for Phillippe de Longvilliers de Poincy, the 17th century governor of Saint Christophe (Saint Kitts). Because it is a legume, the tree has nitrogen-fixating and soil-improving properties.

Hello Sir,

Very well composed picture with perfect vibrant colour.


Hello Mr.Nagraj,
Yes,Samiran Da is right.In Bengal we call it 'Krishnachura' and yellow one calls 'Radhachura'(Crown of the Goddess Radha).

Hello Nagaraj,
missed this one..excellent choice of horizontal framing, fine colours as usual and for us a very exotic looking tree. Must be beautiful if so many are in blossom at the same time.
Kind regards
