Fuschia Blooms

Today’s Foto Fix features brilliantly colored blooms on a tree at the L.A. County Arboretum. I neglected to check the tag for tree variety, so please chime in if you know! It appears slightly similar to an orchard, but is there such a thing as an orchid tree? ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)Fuschia Blooms

    The following is in response to my inquiry, from the Arboretum: “That is most probably Buahinia purpurea, commonly called the ‘orchid tree’ although it is not related to orchids (it is related to peas however).” ~SueBee

    Is it an azalea?

      It was a full size tree, and I’ve never seen azalea so large, but might be in same family!
