Description of the plant
Here is the most rustic Flamboyant and undoubtedly the most spectacular in terms of flowering!
Whether you have a green thumb or not, you will know how to cultivate this bird of paradise which is very adaptable. It tolerates frosts down to -12°C (a true hardy tropical shrub), even if it loses its leaves at the first frost, and stays at reasonable heights.
And its flowering... A real firework of beauty! With its bouquets of upright flowers, its yellow corollas from which a bundle of red stamens emerge, it will fascinate you as much as the butterflies and bees that love to frolic in it.
It is known to cure coughs, fever and wounds, it will certainly cure any untimely melancholy!
