A Splash of Scarlet

I was driving somewhere the other day and just had to stop when I saw this tree outside someone's house.

I always thought they were called Flame Trees but when I tried to find out more about them I was astonished to discover that there are at least 15 different trees and shrubs which are all called flame treees, and none of them seem to look like this!

What I like most is that the flowers are present when the branches are bare of leaves.
