Red African Tulip Tree Spathodea Campanulata Fire Tree Flower Seeds

This African native is fast-growing and has evergreen leaves. These trees grow up to 60' in Africa.

They grow 6’ a year and add 2” of diameter to their trunks per year. The tree will bloom when it is 3 years old.

The leaves of the plant are hardy to 28-30F and the roots are hardy to 22F, so they are pretty tolerant of the cold. The huge, brightly colored flowers are absolutely breathtaking!
