The glory of Colville is a beautiful, large tree from Madagascar with large pinnate leaves and very conspicuous cylindrical or cone-shaped clusters of bright orange flowers.
The wispy, feathery leaves of Colville’s glory tree create a gentle backdrop for its fiery clusters of orange flowers that appear in autumn. The tree grows to a height of 30-50 ft. Its grape-like clusters of velvety buds, varying from chameleon green to blood orange, are a sight to behold.
Leaves a double-compound, very similar to those of Gulmohar.
