The trees are planted a lot in Di Linh District, 78km from the popular tourist town Da Lat. Their flowers bloom from the beginning of the year until the end of March. There are so many yellow poinciana flowers blooming on these trees that the green of the leaves is hardly visible.

Trung Kien, a photographer from Ho Chi Minh City, was surprised to see the brilliant yellow poinciana flowers in early spring. Kien said he used to know the red and purple versions of the flower, but not the yellow one. "The best thing is that the whole tree is full of flowers without any leaves."

The yellow poinciana tree has an upright, branched trunk near the top. Each top has more than a dozen main flower branches, and each main branch has 6 to 8 sub-branches. Each sub-branch has 30 to 40 buds, forming a bunch of flowers.

According to the teachers of Le Loi School, the yellow poinciana flowers bloomed more evenly this year, attracting many tourists to take photos.
