In Bloom: Tabachín

It’s nearly impossible not to notice the absolutely gorgeous brilliant reddish-orange flowers of the Tabachín trees dotted throughout the Jaltemba Bay and Riviera Nayarit area. The flowers start to bloom near the end of May and have five petals, one of which has distinctive white and yellow markings. The Tabachín is also known as Royal Poinciana or Flamboyant Tree.

During the winter, Tabachín trees drop their delicate fern-like leaves allowing you to see their large seed pods.
