African Tulip Tree

These brightly colored flowers are on a large tree growing right downtown in Scottsdale, Arizona. They are called African Tulip Trees or Spathodea and are native to dry regions of Africa. This occurrence is added to that list of very surprising things you can find in Arizona and particularly, the Salt River Valley. I really like this particular color for flowers, but I don't think it would go over as a color for painting a room.

  1. Yes, I agree. This strong red flower looks good in nature, but not in the house.
