Poinciana-002.jpg

Poinciana (Delonix regia)

Originally from Madagascar, this large, spreading tree bears numerous bunches of orange-red flowers in November and December – these are followed by large flat pods which remain on the tree for most of the year. In the latter half of the dry season the tree is deciduous or semi-deciduous, with new leaves usually appearing as flowering is nearly finished. The average height of this tree is around 6m with a canopy spread of over 10m.

The Poinciana puts on its notorious show over the seasons of spring and summer. Even if it never bloomed, it would still be one of the most beautiful trees in the world with its graceful live oak-like form, sculptured Ficus-like surface roots, and lacy fernlike foliage. Virtually everyone falls in love with this tree at first sight.

Norfolk-Pine-Feb-2011-008-1.jpg

Norfolk Island Pine

(Araucaria heterophylla)

These trees, which do originate on Norfolk Island, are not endemic to the Australian mainland, but instead come only from Norfolk Island. A. heterophylla has thrived in Australia, and is extremely useful because of its wind tolerance and adaptation to extremely sandy soils. This tree grows to a height of over 30m in ideal conditions.

The Norfolk Pine will tolerate both very sandy, and high clay fraction soils, provided that free drainage is provided and has proven very useful due to its significant wind tolerance and ability to withstand fairly concentrated salt spray.
