About Peltophorum ferrugineum

The beautiful and graceful peltophorum tree is often called Yellow Poinciana because it looks just like a royal poinciana but with very showy yellow blossoms. These trees work best on a large property or as a single specimen tree in a medium-sized yard.

The breathtaking, frothy flowers appear in late summer on a treetop full of soft, fern-like leaves.
