About The Royal Poinciana

Royal Poinciana is a species of flowering plant in the Fabaceae family. It is native to Madagascar. The plant thrives in tropical and subtropical climates. It creates a perfect view as an ornamental tree in landscaping projects, with its fern-like leaves and orange-red blossoms.


Royal Poinciana trees can grow up to 40 feet in ideal conditions. The tree has an expanded root system and therefore, requires a broad outdoor location to thrive. The evergreen tree bears clusters of red flowers that cover the tree in summer. The foliage on this species is bipinnately. Each leaf is divided into 25 pairs of leaflets, further divided into 25 more pairs of leaflets.

Growing Conditions and Care

Royal Poinciana is an ideal tree to grow in large outdoor spaces as the root system needs a large space to explore. The tree performs best in well-drained, slightly sandy soil with an acidic pH level. The tree can also tolerate clay, loamy, or sandy soil but is not soggy. It offers large and best blooming in full sun. It needs a location that receives at least six hours of direct sunlight. Lack of proper light may result in faded and fewer flowers.

In the early days of the plantation, provide trees with regular water during spring, summer, and early fall. Fertilizing Jacaranda once a year with a balanced fertilizer is enough to encourage flowering and growth. As the tree prefers heat and humidity, it is necessary to prevent it from frost. If possible move the pot indoors during winter.
