  • Flame on! | BEYONDbones
    visitors We keep all these things in mind when selecting a plant for the exhibit One plant in particular that fills all our criteria is the Rainforest Flame Tree or Warszewiczia coccinea as it is known botanically This member of the coffee family is native to Central and South America and the West Indies It is the national tree of Trinidad another common name for this tree is Pride of Trinidad It usually grows to around 25 feet tall but can reach greater heights in different growing conditions In Costa Rica this tree is considered a canopy tree and can reach 50 feet The leaves of the tree are somewhat corrugated and are located oppositely on the stem But the best thing about it are the showy flowering branches They are located on the end of a branch and are placed at the nodes Each flower cluster is accented by a red bract sort of like a poinsettia flower would have In fact another one of the common names for this plant is poinsettia tree The flower cluster which is orange is very appealing to butterflies because it is loaded with nectar In any given moment several species of butterflies can be seen visiting the flowers Although Warszewiczia warrants more use in tropical gardens it is rarely seen outside botanical gardens One reason for this is that it is difficult to propagate Usually plants in the coffee family can be propagated by seeds or by cuttings Warszewiczia on the other hand shows little success with either method After several years of trying in the greenhouses of the Butterfly Center just one cutting has ever proven successful Due to its rarity Warszewiczia is highly sought after by plant collectors If a collector was lucky enough to acquire one of these plants
