I just saw these trees blooming this past February while on holiday in Uruguay. It is a very beautiful tree with dark green leaves and covered with these clusters of scarlet red flowers.

This is such a beautiful bloom! I found some seeds on e-bay! Hoping to have some trees by next year.

This has answered my question to identify a tree growing at home here in Scotland. My son collected a seed pod from a tree by the Napean river in Sydney. He planted a seed here three years ago. We had no idea what it was, but were impressed by those wonderful flowers.
It's still indoors but growing past six foot tall, so I hope it will survive the Scottish climate after establishing in the garden over this comming summer.
Any tips on growing, pruning etc would be most welcome. The original stem is not self supporting, so should it be removed to promote the lower shoots to grow and bush?
