Flamboyant in Alexania
In the main town entrance, the welcome tree.

The delonix regia is a species of flowering plant from the Fabaceae family, noted for its fern-like leaves and flamboyant display of flowers. Often grown as an ornamental tree and given the name Royal Poinciana or Flamboyant, it is also known as Krishnachura, Gulmohar, Peacock Flower, Flame of the Forest, Malinche, and Tabachine, and one of several named the Flame tree.

The tree's vivid red and bright green foliage make it an exceptionally striking sight.
