What is This Tree (Mexico)?

I would like to identify this blooming tree. The tree seems to be from the mimosa group from the leaves and seed pods. The picture was taken in southern Mexico in July.

Thank you

Looks like a poinciana, similar to a mimosa and jacaranda.

When we lived in the Philippine Islands, it grew wild in the fence row and they called it FIRE BUSH.

I live in RI. It looks just like trees we have here only flowers are pink. Anyway, we just call them Mimosa. I have kept some of the pods and I'm trying to figure out how to start one in a pot for indoors. I did find a little one started by a big bush sized one (the other I have is full sized tree) but it turned out to be a "sucker" attached to trunk and couldn't be saved.

Not much help. But they are very beautiful.

I live in Belize and this looks like the "Pride of Barbados" bush we have here. It would also be in Mexico.

Definitely a Red Royal Poinciana. I should have some seeds next spring. I have this and a purple one I grew from seed. They are fast growing and quite hardy if they don't freeze. Mine are both around 16 - 19 feet and grew this big from seed in 6 years. If you want seeds, let me know and I will send you some when they produce the pods. I also have seed pods for another beautiful red flowering tree I have not been able to identify and I can include them also. Let me know. Beth sledgeomatic1 AT earthlink.net

The tree is Delonix Regia or the Royal Poinciana or Gulmohar as is known in India. Here it is very commonly grown as a street tree.
