Artist's Description

It took some research before I learned that some trees with showy orange flowers I had admired in Southern California are African tulip trees (Spathodea campanulata). They are tropical trees and have been introduced in several parts of the world that have warm climates. Unfortunately, they have turned out to be invasive in some places (notably Australia and some South Pacific islands). These blossoms were not far from home, growing on a lush tree in a modest neighborhood.
