Palmate:

Thanks! It has lilac-looking flowers....and since we can't grow lilacs here...we grow the Cape Chestnut. :>)

Thanks!

It always amazes me how many flowers this tree produces when in full bloom.

It blooms very easily...I used to have a large Cape Chestnut tree in a very large pot. It used to bloom profusely every spring or summer. I gave the tree to my mother years ago.
