Features a particularly striking bloom. Upright clusters of dark pink flowers with a yellow throat. It is hard to believe that such exquisite flowers are produced by a tree, they seem more likely to be produced by an orchid. A large shade tree, that doubles as a magnificent ornamental tree when in bloom.
