A few days ago I showed a different color of tabachine. This is the more usual color—and my favorite. Butterflies love them. So do I. Although my gardener calls the small bush varieties of the poinciana tabachine and the large tree varieties flamboyan, sites on the internet call the larger variety both tabachine and Royal Poinciana and this smaller variety a dwarf poinciana.
Click on first photo to enlarge all. I love the juxtaposition of the frilly gold flowers next to the stark cacti. This house has been being built for years. Glad they planted their wall vegetation early.
Love this pink bud stage even more than the white blossoms on my huge jade plant that came to me from my friend Chuy, who led us on many fine adventures before he departed this plane. Chuy, you come to life again every time this gorgeous plant blooms.
