    A species of Poinciana I believe, a legume (Fabaceae family).

    A common name for it is "Pride of Barbados"

    Looks far too flamboyant for a wild flower!

    I was hoping to be able to remove this from the wfgna group, but only because I was hoping it hadn't actually become established here in North America!! Googling suggests it's wild in the Sonoran Desert and Texas...oh well.
