Under The Jakfruit Tree

Looking out the window, there is no mistaking the bright orange pendant raceme of blooms that contrast against the Poinciana-like feathery leaves and blue sky of Colville’s Glory Tree (Colvillea racemosa). It truly is, in all its glory right now. The tree is mostly upright with little crown spread, attaing a height of 30-50′ tall. Those bright orange flowers dangle off the ends of branches, making just a spectacular display. There’s no mistaking this tree when it’s in bloom in early fall in the South Florida landscape.

Richard Lyons Nursery currently has these trees in stock.
