This beautiful small tree has luxuriant feathery foliage topped for 2-3 months in summer with masses of fuzzy pink spheres. It is one of the few flowering trees that bloom in the summer and thus extremely useful. Overall this is a great subtropical contribution to the garden. The wood of this tree is not particularly strong, so plant where it will be protected from our winter wind storms.

Sure, it's messy and you don't want it over your patio. But if you can find a prettier tree in bloom I'd love to know what it is! Just place it in a grassy spot where the sticky sap isn't a problem. (My son's favorite tree!) It's naturalized over Virginia and elsewhere but was originally from China. The Pink Powder-Puff flowers are very distinctive and beautiful over fine-textured foliage. And, how many other trees bloom all summer? I think the answer is 'None'. Like the Buckeye above, it attracts Hummingbirds, another rare attribute. Unlike the Buckeye, however, it is drought tolerant.
