Whats the name of these trees please?

Jimmy is right when he says it is a Flame tree or Flamboyant Tree . The latin name is Delonix regina and is a Rainforest native to Madagascar (I looked the source up) , i thought it was Malaysia and India . I learnt the common name as being Poiceiana . Beautiful tree ,often used as a street tree in Brisbane and further north in Oz.

Butea Superba according to a google search is used for erectile dysfunctional problems , a natural Viagra in other words. Of course that use would be of no interest to any of us.
