Tree name..??
It's difficult to tell for sure from the picture but I think it could be a Bottle Brush Tree or Callistemon.

Callistemon, Bottle Brush Tree

The Turkish word for flower is Cicek, so I guess your neighbours are just saying it's a Flower Tree.

Kermit you got it right found it..!! Well Done Its great when someone can answer Questions. Be interesting to find out how it came to Turkey

Caesalpinia gilliesii is a shrub in the legume family. It is commonly known as bird of paradise, but it is not related to the bird of paradise genus Strelitzia. It grows to 3-4 m tall. The leaves are bipinnate, 10-15 cm long, bearing 3-10 pairs of pinnae, each with 6-10 pairs of leaflets 5-6 mm long and 2-4 mm broad. The flowers are borne in racemes up to 20 cm long, each flower with five yellow petals with 10 long conspicuous red stamens.

It is a striking ornamental plant native to tropical America, mainly Argentina and Uruguay. It is naturalised in Texas, and fairly common in the rest of the southwestern United States, where it is known as bird of paradise bush, desert bird of paradise, yellow bird of paradise, and barba de chivo.

Although it is a tropical plant adapted to dry climate, it also thrives in the climate of Avsa and neighbouring islands in the south of Sea of Marmara in northwestern Turkey, where it is commonly known as Paşabıyığı (Pasabiyigi), Cennetkuşu ağacı (Cennetkusu agaci), which in Turkish means "bird of paradise tree," and Bodurakasya, which means "dwarf acacia".


Medicinal uses
Medicine men of peoples indigenous to the Amazon Rainforest used this plant and the similar Caesalpinia pulcherrima, which they called ayoowiri, for curing fever, sores, and cough. Four grams from the root is also said to induce abortion in the first trimester of pregnancy.[1] However, it must be noted that the seeds and the green seed pods of this plant are toxic, provoking severe vomiting and other abdominal symptoms.

Zozatky - a number of the plants, flowers you see in southern Turkey originated in the Americas - hubby & I notice lots of them when we travel south to Cuba, Mexico etc. Just like tomatoes, potatoes that came over from there from South America. Globalization in the old days :)

Hiya,

The trees name in Turkish is Pasa (Pasha) Biyik (no dots on the i's). Which means 'the Pasha's moustache'- I assume this refers to the red moustache like tendrils hanging from either side of the flower.
