Botanical name: Caesalpinia pulcherrima f. flavaFamily:Caesalpiniaceae (Gulmohar family)
This beautiful treelet, whose place of origin is uncertain, is sometimes
called Dwarf Poinciana due to the resemblence of its flowers and leaves to
those of Gulmohar. They are botanically related but Peacock flower plant
grows only to a height of about 3 meters, retains its leaves throughout the
year, and blooms continuously. Flowers, which appear in clusters on long
erect stems, are smaller than those of Gulmohar and have exceptionally
long stamens and a prominent pistil which protrudes from the center.
The most common color is red-orange, but one variety has pure yellow
