Trees in Bloom
Come summer months
We citizens wilt
But the trees bloom
And the riot of colours
Are a feast to the eyes!
Flame of the forest
Known as Butea frondosa
Cover the trees crown
With vermilion and orange flowers!
Gul Mohar (Poinciana)
Called as Delonix regia
Is a canopy over the tree
With ornamental bright red flowers!
Golden shower(Indian Laburnum)
Specified as Cassia fistula
Blooms hanging profusely
With gorgeous yellow blossoms!
Pink Cassia (Pink shower)
Named as Cassia grandis
Is a floral medley
With its pink and white flowers!
Signified as Plumeria rubra
Is also found with mild aroma
With their pink and yellow blooms!
Copper Pod (Yellow Poinciana)
Cited as Peltophorum pterocarpum
Creates a carpet-like effect
With their scented yellow flowers!
Pride of India(Queen’s flower)
Hailed as Lagerstroemia speciosa
In stalks stand tall
With their lovely pink inflorescence!
Designated as Erythrina indica
With pointy bird beaks
Bear scarlet-red flowers in clusters!
Rain Tree(monkey pod)
Termed as Samana saman
blooms in splendour
with rosy-pink fragrant flowers!
The flowers with nectar
Are a magnet for pollinators
Such as bees, birds and butterflies
Which create fruit-pods!
