: Hope someone can help me! In April I obtained several seed pods for the gorgeous tropical flamboyant tree I've loved for SO long... planted the seeds here in California. Out of 50+ seeds, I got 4 healthy seedlings, grown under cover of a structure we built and covered with cheesecloth (since they didn't seem to like direct hot sun). They've grown to a couple of feet in height (my "Ichabod" is nearly 3 feet!). Now, however, our summer is over and nights are cool... and the leaves are starting to turn yellow and fall off. I'm so upset!!!! I tried bringing them semi-indoors (a sunroom we had added on), but they didn't like that either. Any ideas on how to keep them alive??? I DON'T WANT THEM TO DIE!!! Thanks for any help! Please send any replies directly to me at cmcbride50@cox.net.

Hi Cindy,

I did a search at www.google.com and the botanical or Latin name of your tree is delonix regia. Here is a site that explains it's needs.

Here's a site to find your zone.

Good luck,
