Learning to develop a Tropical Garden. I have planted three mangos; coconuts; avocados; figs; bananas; gardenia some diverse palm trees, also growing natives. I am in zone 9. The location is a barrier island in Central FL on the East side. Have a artesian well. RE: Royal Poinciana/Flamboyant. I planted one small tree and did not survive. But, I have seen two growing to a midium size a few blocks away. Any information on planting the seeds. Or other. Thanks!

They do not tolerate temperatures below 40 degrees. Some winter protection is needed and many young trees die until they reach about 4 inches diameter. Even in Bermuda they lost their leaves in the winter. Try a few bales of hay and mulch deeply, up 3 or 4 feet during cold weather. I did that for my Orange trees here and they are fine now.

I hope this helps.

I live in Orlando and we had a Yellow Poinciana in our front yard about 50' tall until our garbage truck caught it and pulled it right out of the ground. It was such a beautiful tree. We are trying to get it replaced and I really want a Royal Poinciana. Any chance it will be survive?

That is so sad to lose a beautiful tree like that. Do you have seed from it? You could likely start on in a pot and plant it after a couple of years. Good luck, and thank you for the pictures.
