Will the Royal Poinciana (Delonis regia) or Dwarf Poinciana (P. pulcherrima) grow well in Corona, California?

Poinciana, or Caesalpinia, is commonly known as Giant Bird of Paradise Bush. Despite its appearance, it's a tough, fast growing plant, that rebounds if frozen down to the ground in the winter. Expect your plant to bloom almost all year around, except during the coldest months. It's a good choice for your Southern California garden.
