Caesalpinia pulcherrima - Peacock flower

Caesalpinia pulcherrima- Peacock flower (孔雀花 - kong3 que4 hua1)
Family: Caesalpinioideae / Caesalpiniaceae
There were a few of these peacock flower shrubs with flowers that were past their prime at West Coast Park. I had to circle them a few times to find some flowers that were still reasonably good-looking. Wish I had seen them when they first bloomed.
