A close up of the Floss Silk tree's flowers at the main library on Coronado Island. This tree can have pink, burgundy, red, or white flowers...it's a distant relative of the Hibiscus. Photo taken Oct. 8, 2010.

Meanie:

It's another very common tree here. It's extremely drought tolerant.
I think the variety 'Los Angeles Beauty' (which has wine red flowers) is my favorite grafted Silk Tree.

Pretty! And it reminds me to look more closely at the Chorisias, here.

Thanks! Do they start blooming in Phoenix in August? or earlier?

Usually sometime in October, sometimes as late as November. No idea what makes the difference.

Tugbrethil:

I know it luxuriates in heat...however, maybe it too hot for them to bloom there in August?

That's my suspicion, but no one believes it.

Tugbrethil:

Of course, there could be some other factor.
