Fascinated by the Brown Flower Tree

I expect many of us have seen the gorgeous, bright pink flowers of the silk floss tree, but have you ever seen that same tree in yellow and brown? I spotted this beautiful specimen at the South Coast Botanic Gardens this past weekend. One might expect the yellow flowers to turn brown as they’re drying up and ready to drop, but the brown flowers on this floss tree were as spectacularly fresh as the yellow ones. I was enthralled! ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

    It is indeed a fascinating tree.

    Surprising! I’ve seen this tree everywhere, but nowhere have I seen the brown flowers.
