Yellow Flame Tree Peltophorum pterocarpumBy Bu00ecnh Giang Public domain (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Peltophorum pterocarpum

Fast growing excellent feature tree for tropical and subtropical gardens. Spreading tree with a rounded canopy and dark green ferny foliage. Spectacular sprays of crinkled, yellow flowers are held on long stems above the foliage, and have a pleasant fragrance, smothering the tree in Spring. Long, dark red seed pods follow, and remain on the tree until flowering begins in again. Semi-deciduous.

Other Names: Yellow poinciana

Unfortunately not doing so well, it went great guns till winter last year tripling in size but midway through winter with the frosts all the leaves and new growth died. In spring new shoots started from the base so we cut the tree back to about 15cm above the new growth, the tree then took off again. For the winter we spread sarlon over the top to protect it from the frosts, the tree has again got black leaves and branches and looks like it is dying - not as bad as last winter. Conclusion is that it is too cold here in the Hills Shire of Sydney and we look like losing this tree.
