3 Yellow Flame

Yellow Flame (Peltophorum pterocarpum)
Family: Fabaceae (Leguminosae)

yellow flame

The Yellow Flame grows up to 20m tall. It is a popular tree for roadside planting. It is drought-resistant, which makes it well adapted to Singapore’s sunny urban conditions.

This tree has a wide-spreading, umbrella-shaped crown, which provides excellent shade.

When the tree flowers, its fragrant, brilliant yellow blossoms cover the entire crown. These flowers are about 3cm in size, and have wavy, crinkled petals that resemble tissue paper.

After the flowering season, the flowers develop into woody purple-brown fruit pods that develop on the tree. These pods remain in the crown for several months before dropping off.
