It's looking good. This is another plant which likes the cooler weather outside, in winter. It's doing very well outside for you.

Thanks all!

It's very much indoors Delonix.............

They seem to have flowered on and off quite a bit this summer Meanie. Probably thought it was autumn/winter all the time.....

Meanie:

Oh, I guess it's a little too tender for outside in winter.

It would have been easy to have got confused this year HB!

Too tender for our winter Delonix!

That is a beautiful flower Meanie. It looks like a bird in flight.

They are certainly a dramatic bloom Aleyna!

I wholeheartedly agree with you, Aleyna, they do look like a bird in flight! I have some as well in a bright pink & white & also in a deep red. I've uploaded photos of them as they have been in flower for several weeks now.

I was well impressed with yours! Far better than my efforts!

I've since stuck a plastic label in the red one's pot so I will know in the future which one it is. No sign of the white one I had though. :-(( It must have died away during the summer. :-((
