Flamboyant losing leaves in spring
Flamboyant tree, about 4 m high, Losing leaves.
We moved to Gaborone, Botswana 6 months ago.
In our small courtyard garden there is one Flamboyant tree. It was in flower when we moved in in March. I believe a Flamboyant is deciduous but this tree didn't lose its leaves during the winter. There was a light frost once and some of the top branches were affected, died and dropped off.
Now that spring is here, although the temperatures are already in the mid 30's so it feels like mid summer, all the leaves are turning yellow and dropping off. Is the tree confused? Is it too hot?
It must have been here several years so us surely adapted to the climate and conditions.
