Flame trees do well here. They are beautiful in bloom and the lacy leaves are always pretty. There is a red carpet of petals on the ground when they are blooming; otherwise they don't "shed" much. The seeds germinate easily but the young plants do not like to be moved - at least in my experience - so I suggest starting them where you want them to be. The young trees grow quite rapidly and they can begin flowering in 3-5 years. kb
