The flowering tree with flaming beauty

You will need to put on your sunglasses before gazing at the Poinciana tree's blazing beauty once it erupts with thousands of bright red blooms every spring. The flame colored blooms melt the snow away in order to make way for spring.

The hot blooms are a delight to watch, as they shimmer and dance among the tree branches every time the wind blows. Poinciana trees stand out like a beacon as the brightest trees in the neighborhood, attracting the jealous eyes of neighbors to your yard.

Brightly colored Poinciana blooms pop against lush, long slender leaves that give this tree a tropical look. The exotic subtropical elegance of this tree will create a relaxed feeling of zen that is usually only found in oriental jungles.

Because Poinciana trees are semi-evergreen, if your climate is warm enough then these trees won't lose their leaves, and will provide your yard with abundant green foliage all year.

Poinciana trees are the perfect addition to any landscape with their fast growth rate of up to five feet a year. Once planted they take off in order to provide breath taking beauty among the landscape. Their rapid growth rate and size also makes them the perfect choice for areas that need shade trees fast.

These vigorous growers have an extremely high drought tolerance and grow extremely well in the dry, sandy areas where other flowering trees can't take the heat. Places with arid conditions are often turned into relaxing oases once Poinciana trees are planted to create shade and beauty.

Don't miss your chance to add glamourous Poinciana trees to your landscape. They are selling out fast and we recommend getting yours today, before they're gone.

Incredible! The most beautiful tree I have ever seen!
This tree came to me in excellent condition in just two days! I planted it and a few months later I got my first cluster of blooms. Now the thing is covered and I get compliments all the time!!!
I grew mine in a container and followed the directions.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Royal Poinciana Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Royal Poinciana Tree .

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Royal Poinciana Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Royal Poinciana Tree again after the transplant is complete.

The resort that I go to in riviera Maya has one of these trees and I have admired it for a very long time. My mother wanted one on one of our trips to Mexico when I was a child . She was mesmerized by its beauty, the same way that I am. It's time to grow my own and enjoy it year round.
