Native to just about all of tropical Asia and northern Africa (some claim also Australia), this large tree is a very commonly grown tree in cultivation, though not so much in southern California where it is an extremely marginal species. It is grown not only for its brilliant red-orange horn-of-plenty shaped flowers, but for its commonly variegated leaves as well (not all trees have variegated leaves). Flowering is generally in mid to late winter, into spring.
