The red flowering tree seen growing in Jamaica
What is the name of the red flowering tree seen growing in Jamaica?
ANSWER:by Wellesley Gayle
I think you are speaking of the poinciana.
It is almost everywhere in Jamaica and grows what we call the 'shake shake', which is simply the flower becoming a mature fruit.
The flower itself is beautiful and fern-like.
The tree blooms are in red flowers but there are varieties which blooms orange and yellow flowers.
Typically, blooming season ends in September.
