Pet Friendly Homes in Boca Raton: Royal Poinciana Tree in Boca Raton FL

Royal Poinciana Tree in Boca Raton FL

 

This photo shows a Royal Poincianaia tree in bloom in Boca Raton FL.  I see these trees all year.  I drive past all the time.  We are lucky to have an abundance of tropical foliage in Boca Raton.  It is only in the late spring and summer when the trees are in bloom with their bright orange-red blossoms that I really notice them.  Seems strange because they are so magnificent.

Some interesting facts about the Royal Poinciana:  It is known as Delonix Regia - regia meaning royal and that is definitely what this tree is. They are also known as Flamboyant trees or Flame trees native to Madagascar but are found in the Caribbean and south Florida.  

 

These trees are too big for an average yard as they can grow to 40 or 50 feet tall and almost as wide.  They need large green space to showcase their magnificence.  

 

If you are in Boca Raton FL from May through July, you will likely see a Royal Poinciana tree.  Stop a moment and enjoy.

Having lived in Ft Lauderdale area for 25 years before moving to Destin I well remember the Poinciana trees. They are beautiful.

Bill,  Then you know.  They are indeed beautiful.

The Royal Poinciana tree in Boca Raton Florida is stunning! You are very blessed to see this beauty every day. Here in Richmond Virginia we enjoy our state tree which is the Dogwood and I LOVE the Crape Myrtles!

That is a gorgeous tree. Thanks for sharing your photo.

Hi Elyse .. there are many of those beautiful trees in Miami.  I always enjoyed them when I lived there.  That picture and location are perfect for that tree.

Posted by Judith Parker, CRS, GRI, CMRS, Charlotte, NC (ProStead Realty) over 5 years ago

Elyse, I remember seeing these trees growing up in Miami. They lined the boulevards and were in many of the public parks. I bet they still do.

Elyse, what a beautiful tree and thanks for taking the time to introduce it to us.  It certainly is worth stopping and enjoying the beauty!  I take it you didn't see many of these around the boroughs of NYC when growing up!    ^_~

Elyse, that is a very impressive tree.  You make a good point about the size of the tree and the yard needed, I think too often a homeowner will plant a tree that will out grow the intended or available space, crowding out other trees and the house for that matter.

Awesome picture and interesting information about a local tree in Boca Raton.

Posted by Jill Winchel, We make it easy. You make it home. (Royal Shell Real Estate - The Koffman Group ) over 5 years ago

Gabe,  They are such beautiful trees.  Thank you.

Shannon,  I looked up a Crape Myrtle and the Dogwood, though I have heard of the Dogwood before.  They are both beautiful trees!

Pamela,  Thank you and thanks for stopping by.

Judith,  Yes, they are all over and that location is perfect because it allows the tree to shine.

Debbie,  They are plentiful here in south Florida.  I didn't know you grew up in Miami.

Nick, You are so right.  So often I see hedges planted up against a house or trees way too close to the driveway.  

Jill,  Thank you and thanks for stopping by.

They are gorgeous, Elyce.   I have seen them in the St. Pete area but not up here.
