Dombeya wallichii - Tropical Hydrangea

Dombeya wallichii - Tropical Hydrangea (Dombeya wallichii - Tropical Hydrangea)

This is not a Hydrangea. My tropical hydrangea has a flower ball. This is the first time I've ever seen a flower on this tree in summer. Its normal bloom season starts the beginning of January. Photo taken June 22, 2015.

Looks more like a member of the Malvaceae family than a Hydrangea to me. That's why I hate common names.

Yes, you're correct it's in the Malvaceae family.

The flower spikes tend to be much larger; however, it's never bloomed in summer before...
