Yellow Flowering Tree

The tree has several common names. People call it yellow poinciana, yellow flame tree, copper-pod or yellow flamboyant tree. Flamboyant is the tree’s well-known name here. I captured these yellow flowers from moving car.
 Based on floridata.com, I read that yellow Poinciana trees are usually planted as specimen trees or as shade trees. They are used as street trees in tropical cities, and commonly planted for shade in tropical and subtropical gardens. They are fast-growing and strong, but they can’t put up with frost.

Most tropical trees have difficulties tolerating frost.
The golden tree is so pretty.
