3 years ago I planted some flowering trees near my home in open ground. This is the forst. The plant was a couple of years old when it was planted. Peltophorum is next in line.

Dear Mr. Bhatt ji:
very nice pictures.. so your tree survived and florurished...... and
peltoforum is popular too... very obviously for the red and yellow
display...
PLEASE refer to a recent discussion we had on the beauty and
usefulness/ uselessness of both these trees ....
I refer you to this thread right here on eflora...

I am an old man and I wanted quick results, see the flowers before I become 'dear to god' and hence I went for this tree. I have also planted a number of chiraul trees but it has hardly any part which is showy. Among Indian flowering trees one can immediately name butea, coral, and Indian laburnum. But both palash and kachnar are not a very pretty sight when not in flower, and Indian coral is a delicate tree, I have seen it dying for no rhyme and reason (to the layman).
true' gulmohur is brittle, weak and short lived, but 'in spite of your faults, I love thee still.'

Dear Bhatt ji: I am glad you planted them and are enjoying the colors... I am partial to these trees and their red colors , I chose my current abode because there were 8 delonix regia surrounding it... imagine that... and some 20+ years ago I wrote about my love for Krishnachura in an international publication...  so please do not think any aspersion was meant...   may you and your trees grow old together yet...   Lots of love, Usha di.
