I do like the Cassalpinia genus, but I'm sure that you're just waiting for the Delonix!

Meanie:

Caesalpinia species are very common here in California. Generally, C. pulcherrima, gilliesii, and mexicanum are the most common species. Although, C. ferrea is starting to become very, very popular because of the absolutely gorgeous trunk!
