1-2 year old seedling, H:40-70 cm. This is one of the few species of Delonix that grows as a "bottle-tree" , like a baobab. It is native to the dry South of Madagascar, where it grows together with other succulent plants and caudiciforms. Adult "bottle-trees" are very beautiful when they get covered of plenty of flowers.
Another interesting Delonix from Madagascar. It is very adaptable and can attain anything from 3 to 12 m in height. Flowers lack petals but they are very beautiful, with lots of golden stamens shown when the tree is still leafless. We grew some plants in 35 cm pots and they started blooming beautifully after about 5 years, when they were just 1.5 m tall.
This unusual turtle-shaped caudex is a winter-growing deciduous climber. It is a slow and long-lived plant.
Very ornamental deciduous erythrina from dry South Africa, with elegant, compact foliage. Branches come up from an underground caudex. It bears bicoloured flowers of an outstanding beauty. he caudex can grow to 25 cm in diameter and can be exposed in cultivation to enhance the unusual beauty of this plant.
Small tree from dry South Africa with unusually thick branches and unsually wide trifoliate leaves. These are gorgeous, velvety, with a few spines. It is very ornamental. It starts its life with a caudex and can stay in a pot for eons, keeping a nice caudex with very short shoots. Inforescences show the fabulous classic erythrina-red colour and flowers...
