THE YELLOW FLAME TREE

I mentioned in a previous post about the area near the Taman Herba being a sea of yellow flowers. In the morning Tuan Haji Hasnin asked me what the tree was called but I had no idea but I know now after checking it our in the web. It is called the Yellow Flame Tree.
Here is more information about the tree:
Peltophorum pterocarpum (Copperpod, Golden Flamboyant, Yellow Flamboyant, Yellow Flame Tree, Yellow Poinciana, Radhachura in Bangla) is a species of Peltophorum, native to tropical southeastern Asia.
