Delonix Regia in Southern Cal?
I have a climate question... I am considering to plant a large Delonix Regia (poinciara, flamoboyant tree) as the primary shade tree in my yard. I live in Chula Vista, Zip 91910, about a mile from Ocean water. The ZIP code, and looking at the thermometer puts my in USDA zone 10b, maybe 11, and Sunset Gardening Zone 23. I am away from the marine layer, but can feel an occasional Ocean breeze (i.e. we are not totally inland - milder summers, milder winters; and not directly on the water). The tree would be in the middle of watered lawn. Will it live? Anything I should consider about the soil, watering, etc?
Thanks a bunch!!
