999. Curaçao’s Flaming Flamboyán

999. Flamboyan in Bloom

Curaçao’s Flamboyán (Delonix regia) has large flaming red, orange, vermilion and yellow ferns. She reigns proud as a peacock from May to September, providing much-needed relief from Curaçao’s equatorial sun and hours of fun for adventurous tree climbers.

But Curaçao’s resident Beyoncé is far from your average tall exotic bird, she’s also a legume and carries nitrogen-fixating and soil-improving properties.
