Peltophorum, Peela Gulmohar - Plant
Description for Peltophorum, Peela Gulmohar
The breathtaking, frothy flowers appear in late summer on a treetop full of soft, fern-like leaves. The tree is bare in winter and the canopy of fine-leafed foliage in spring, summer and fall creates an understory of dappled shade. This provides a perfect environment for certain plants that thrive in the less-blazing sun of winter and more filtered light in summer.
