Last week I shared pink blossoms on a neighbor’s tree. The majority of readers thought it was an Eastern Redbud. Today I’m sharing a tree around the corner and down about a block. It’s raining white blossoms.
The flowers remind me of an azalea but I’ve never seen an azalea this large. Any one have an idea? It’s not a dogwood, a magnolia, and several other trees I’ve looked up. The flower is wrong. A spring flowering tree with white blossoms that can grow in Florida. From what I have read there are hundreds of varieties of azalea and some can grow as a muli-trunk small trees. I talked with the owner of that home and he has no idea what it is. His uncle, who lives in West Palm Beach, gave him the plant when it was a baby. He said Palm Beach County on the east coast of Florida is full of them.
I took photos last Wednesday which was a cloudy, rainy day. The flowers didn’t stand out against the cloudy sky so I returned on Friday. The tree is gorgeous against our usual blue skies.
