Scientific name: Delonix regia
Medicinal use: It is one of the most colorful trees in the world for its red, orange and lilac flowers, and for its bright green foliage it can reach up to 12 m. Caribbean natives use the ripe pods with whole seeds as percussion instruments known as shak-shak or maracas. They are also used as livestock feed in some parts of Colombia. In addition to its ornamental use in streets and public spaces, it is used as a shade tree because its foliage is widely spread.
