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.
