Photographer's Note

Gulmohar is a flamboyant flowering tree, Some say the world's most colorful tree. In spring and summer for several weeks this tree is covered with exuberant clusters of flame-red flowers. Even up close the individual flowers are striking. They have four spoon shaped spreading scarlet of orange-red petals, and one upright slightly larger petal. The delicate fern-like leaves are composed of small individual leaflets, which fold up at the onset of dusk. Gulmohar tree grows 30-40ft tall. Its elegant wide-spreading umbrella like canopy can be wider than its height. Gumohar is naturalized in India and is widely cultivated as a street tree.
