peacock-flower Peacock flower TreeNative to the tropics and subtropics, it flourishes during summer when the weather is hottest and other vegetation fades.

This ancient healing plant is emerging from the shadows as a potent natural healer. Watch this trailer to learn more:

This exotic plant is used extensively for its extravagant, showy flowers and its incredible heat tolerance.

The flowers are borne in terminal clusters 8-10″ (20-25 cm) tall throughout most of the year in tropical climates and in late summer and fall where frosts occur.

The most common colours are red and orange or a combination of red and yellow, but there are also forms with pure yellow flowers (often called yellow bird of paradise) and forms with flowers in shades of pink.

Peacock flower Tree

The inch-wide flowers have slightly ruffled petals and 10 long, red protruding stamens as accents (except the pure yellow form).

As the inflorescence elongates, it produces new flowers at the top 1/3, and promptly sheds the lower old flowers.

The pods form quickly at the bottom of the inflorescence, and the flower buds open a few at a time, so that buds, flowers, and seed pods appear simultaneously.

The fruits are legumes looking very much like pea pods, but they are poisonous. As they mature they turn hard and brown and when ripe they split open noisily releasing the brown beans.

Peacock flower is very easy to grow in alkaline to acidic, well-drained soils. This is a fast growing plant and moderately tolerant of salty conditions.

Fertilizer application is hardly necessary, especially if it is grown in adequately mulched soils.
