Photographer's Note

Nome estrangeiro, do jeito que brasileiro gosta. Palavra de origem francesa que significa flamejante, em virtude da acentuada colora誽o de suas flores. Esta 嫫vore nativa da costa leste da 繈rica, de Madagascar e de ilhas do Oceano 瓝dico. O Flamboyant foi introduzido no Brasil, no in獳io do s嶰ulo XIX, por D. Jo緌 VI, rei portugu瘰. Esta esp嶰ie adaptou-se t緌 bem ao clima e ao solo brasileiros, que chegamos a pensar que seja mais uma 嫫vore nativa, e, tamb幦 conhecida popularmente pelo nome de Flor-do-Para疄o. A flora誽o ocorre nos meses de outubro a dezembro. Nome cient璗ico: Delonix regia, da fam璱ia Leguminosae, a mesma do Pau-Brasil. Talvez, a esteja a explica誽o para a excelente adapta誽o nestes tr鏕icos.
Burle Max, o autor do plano paisag疄tico de Bras璱ia, ao elaborar o seu projeto, estabeleceu como meta que a cidade deveria ficar florida o ano inteiro, e para tanto, foram importadas, de v嫫ios estados brasileiros, 嫫vores com diferentes 廧ocas de flora誽o, que juntas com as 嫫vores nativas do cerrado, oferecem este espet塶ulo natural durante o ano inteiro.
