The Delonix Regia is found in Madagascar's dry deciduous forests. In the wild it is endangered, but it is widely cultivated elsewhere. In addition to its ornamental value, it is also a useful shade tree in tropical conditions, because it usually grows to a modest height (mostly 5 meters, but it can reach an maximum height of 12 meters) but spreads widely, and its dense foliage provides full shade. In areas with a marked dry season, it sheds its leaves during the drought, but in other areas it is virtually evergreen. Flowers appear in corymbs along and at the ends of branches. Pods are green and flaccid when young and turn dark-brown and woody.

The flowers are large, with four spreading scarlet or orange-red petals up to 8 cm long, and a fifth upright petal called the standard, which is slightly larger and spotted with yellow and white. The naturally occurring variety flavida (Bengali: Radhachura) has yellow flowers. Seed pods are dark brown and can be up to 60 cm long and 5 cm wide; the individual seeds, however, are small, weighing around 0.4 g on average. The compound leaves have a feathery appearance and are a characteristic light, bright green. They are doubly pinnate: Each leaf is 30–50 cm long and has 20 to 40 pairs of primary leaflets or pinnae on it, and each of these is further divided into 10-20 pairs of secondary leaflets or pinnules.

Each packet contains 20 Flamboyant seeds.

I received the order in about 2 weeks. I put 20 seeds in warm water (110F), covered the glass with kling wrap and put it outside in the hot Arizona sun for about 36 hours. I then planted the seeds in ordinary potting soil and kept the surface moist. Five seeds sprouted in about 3 days. Now seven days later (10 days after I started pre-treatment, the seedlings are 4" high. All five look healthy and are growing fast. They are delicate though and need looking after. None of the other seeds germinated.

I planted them in one of my grow boxes that are like minigreen houses for sprouting things with humidity. So far about 10 have sprouted. They are coming along nicely.
