Ooh, that pink cassia is beautiful!
It really is. People are stopping to take photos. It's a fast grower, which makes me think it might not do too well in a storm. :-(
Gorgeous! I am sure it is a attention grabber! I would have stopped to take a picture too :) How fast does this tree grow?
Ami, it's fast; I think it's about 4 years old. Most of the year it's actually rather unattractive with its ugly shape. I got it when it was v. small from the Flowering Tree Society in Dade.
Wow. That is a real show stopper. Do the butterflies love it like the yellow cassia?
Hey, Nana. Not that I've seen. :(It may be too new an introduction for butterflies to have figured it out. I've only seen one other of these in flower around here.
Look so much like crab apple tree.Im sure it would so explosive beautiful if more trees are planted together in a clump.
Hi, James. It sometimes gets called the dwarf apple blossom tree, which I think is a daft name because there's nothing dwarf about the tree or the blossom.It's native to Southeast Asia, I believe, so you could grow it. :)
I have put a tree like yours on my blog for the last 4 years. I've watched this one grow:http://togofcoralgables.blogspot.com/2010/05/showing-off-for-4th-time.html
Hey, TOG. I saw you had one on your blog. Whereabouts is it? I know I saw another one recently, but for the life of me I can't remember where. The best is over now, but it's still pretty.
Hi Terra. It will do fine in a wind storm. The branches are very flexible. Check out our website at Georgiavines.com
Thanks, Lori. And will do.-- Penny
