A popular ornamental throughout the tropics, flamboyan—Delonix regia (Bojer ex Hook.) Raf.—is a small to medium-sized tree, typically 7 to 16 m high and up to 60 cm in diameter (Little and Wadsworth 1964). The champion Puerto Rican flamboyan, however, is 32 m high and 105 cm in diameter (Francis 1994). It grows well in moist soil derived from limestone, where it is common and reproduces well, but it is also tolerant of well-drained and somewhat droughty conditions (Francis and Liogier 1991).
