    Mike,

    Can you describe this tree for us? Or better still, if you have a picture of one, email it to me!

      My wife can describe it, but I don't have any pictures. She is the one wanting it, so when I see her I'll get a description from her.

            Hey Mike, you really got caught out on a LIMB with that one!! But, I'm sure someone will be able to get to the ROOT of your question.

              The tree produces orange flowers in large bouquets which are quiet beautiful. The bouquets resemble those of a mimosa tree, but that's all. The flowers are quite different. From what I remember the tree is about the same height of a mimosa. It is native to warm climates and won't survive in cold weather. I know it's vague, but that's what I remember.

                Well, I'm stumped here. Are you SURE (maybe double SURE) about the spelling?

                  That's what she told me, but I dunno. Don't worry to much about it. The dam things won't grow here anyway, so I don't know why she wants it.

                        ...which are quiet beautiful.
                        As opposed to noisy beautiful?

                        Never heard of it, but I've seen alot of Poinciana down here in the form of street names and all.
