Dombeya wallichii - Pink Ball Tree, Tropical Hydrangea Flowers


Dombeya wallichii - Pink Ball Tree, Tropical Hydrangea Flowers (Dombeya wallichii - Pink Ball Tree, Tropical Hydrangea Flowers)

My small Pink Ball tree which is blooming now. It is native to Eastern tropical Africa and Madagascar. It's a wonderful tropical flowering tree which has a sweet fragrance many times described as smelling like strawberry cake...which I agree with 100%.

Thanks! Yes, this is a super beautiful tree which has very large leaves that feel like soft fur...then there's the large flower heads and sweet fragrance. It's a treasure of a tree.
