Thank you so much! You're was driving me knowing this tree's name. In this area there's many Brachychiton species...most of my other photos I took unfortunately were too blurry to post.

Glad I could put you out of your misery Delonix!! I do know what it's like not knowing the name of something - so frustrating. Shame your other photos didn't turn out as there are a few rather lovely brachychitons.

Thanks again!

It can be very frustrating identifying trees and plants...especially when I know the name and can't remember.

Yes, there's many species of Brachychiton growing well thoughout California. They are so popular because of their flowers and drought tolerance.

I can always go back to take more photos...however, I think I need to buy another higher quality camera.
