One colourful tree that has been in bloom in Phimai this month has been the Royal Poinciana (Latin: Delonix regia /Thai: หางนกยูงฝรั่ง – peacock tail), also called the flamboyant tree or flame tree due to its large bright red/orange/scarlet flowers.
This particular flame tree can be found growing in the area near the Banyan Tree.

One of my favourite plants in bloom in Phimai this month has been the Golden Shower Tree (Cassia fistula / ราชพฤกษ์–Ratchapreuk). The flower of the Golden Shower Tree is the national flower of Thailand.
