Last month I mentioned that the tree down the street had bloom and I didn’t get the chance to take photos. I first photographed it 2 years ago and asked for help identifying the tree. The owner did not know what kind of tree it is. In February it has pink blossoms for a short while. Some people suggested a fruit tree or almond tree, but the tree makes no fruit or nut. Most people suggested a Redbud tree. I looked it up and found this description:
Cercis canadensis, the eastern redbud, is a large deciduous shrub or small tree, native to eastern North America from southern Michigan south to central Mexico, east to New Mexico.
Most descriptions say it blooms in April, but everything in Florida is earlier. By mid or late April, central Florida is starting the heat of summer. Therefore, I’m calling it an Eastern Redbud. If you know this is incorrect, please let me know. The first week in March I drove by the tree and there were more blooms! I stopped and took a few snaps. Why is it still blooming? I think it’s because there is a second tree growing from its side. That section is in bloom.
I hope you all have a beautiful spring.
