I Found A Yellow Flame Tree!

Most of the blooms on this flame tree have fallen off, but they sure were gorgeous about two or three weeks ago when this tree was in full bloom!
I couldn't believe my eyes when I came across this Yellow Flame Tree. I have been looking for a way to get more Yellow Flame Tree seedlings propagated but, so far, I haven't been successful.

I was told that the lone Yellow Flame Tree at Marianas High School was too old to reproduce any seedlings.

Then I had a conversation with Brad Doerr who grew those Flame Trees for us as part of our "Adopt a Flame Tree Program." He said the Yellow Flame Tree would have to be cloned.

Anyway, since then, I've learned that there are a few (very few) other places on island that actually have this Yellow Flame Tree. I will try and continue to wait patiently until I can get my hands on those Yellow Flame Tree seedlings!

Unfortunately, my Flametree looks like dead. But, my daughter's tree is growing so fast.

Anyone who wants to grow healthy plants should know that location is one of the most important factors that governs successful growth of plants. Most people buy a plant, go out into the garden, dig a hole somewhere, and place the plant in the soil: and when the plant fails to grow, they blame the nursery or soil. Site selection is vital if you want your plants to grow and thrive. Choosing the best site can save a lot of frustration and headaches.
