The flame of the forest blooms overwhelmingly with panicles full of bright, orange-red flowers. The flowers are pollinated by the purple honeyeater, which can reach the nectar with its long bill without damaging the flowers. It is a tropical tree that can grow up to 12 meters high in the wild and can be kept as a tub plant with a minimum temperature of 3 degrees Celsius with us. A position in the sun is necessary for good growth.
The species plays an important role in the production of shellac. This is produced by the lacquer shield aphid that lives on the tree in tropical areas. Shellac is used by the pharmaceutical industry and is also used, for example, for the wax coating of a lemon. In addition, this species is of religious significance to Hindus and fires in temples are made with the wood from the tree.
