Mystery Solved!

My mystery tree is a Chinese Flame Tree. Thank you Nikkipolani for helping me identify my tree.

 

Here’s her comment that she left on my previous post…

Oh yeah, I’ve got one of those. It’s a Chinese Flame Tree. Beautiful little yellow flowers, turns into papery bougainvillea type pods, drops them everywhere, seedlings a few months later in all the places the pods have dropped.

 

I decided to go back out and take some close-ups of the pods and leaves. Bloggy friends are such a great source of information!! The photo below shows the tree before all the blossoms rained down on my lawn and patio slab.

 

Have a great Sunday everyone…

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

  1. Ellen: I was going to get back with you as I wondered if what you had is the same tree I SHOWED ON MY BLOG LAST YEAR IN MY YARD. THIS IS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE TREE – THE CHINESE FLAMING RAINTREE! My is much younger and smaller than yours. When I lived in Houson the pods were peachy and I have seen this tree in Israel! I love it!
